CARMEN, Bohol – PSInsp Cresente Gorrea, police chief of this premier hinterland tourist town bared that it was inaccurate that the seized “shabu” from the suspects following the raid of drug den in barangay Matin-ao were measured in kilos. This came as one of the police officers told DyTR the other night that the raiding team confiscated some 24 kilos of the illegal substances, referred to as “shabu.” He clarified that the alleged drugs proceeds recovered from the suspects listed in a tiny note book, referred to as “blue book” were marked “K” after the amount of cash
The “K” marked after each amount was referred to as “kilos” by the the police who told the radio program. But the “K” means “thousands” of pesos, like, for instance, “2-22-15-24K.” The “2” probably represents the month of February; the “22” as date; and “15” as year and the “24K”as the amount. He showed the said “blue book” but did not divulge yet the names or personalities who may be involved in the illegal drugs trade.
Ths said list (blue book) showed thousands of money listed and believed proceeds of the contra band. A certain Priscillano Quirol, married and his companion Danilo Robredo reportedly died in a shootout when police team led by Gorrea swooped down their alleged lair in barangay Matin-ao.
But the other three companions fled on foot and remain at large, Gorrea said.
No one was hurt on the side of the raiding team, the report said.
Recovered from the suspects included a motorcycle unit, 18 small sachets and other five big sachets with “shabu” and a pistol with live bullets, the report said.
Gorrea said that it won’t be long they’ll file an appropriate charges against those who managed to escape as soon as they’re identified, Gorrea said. (rvo)
