‘Police refuse P100,000’
Northern Police District Director Police Senior Supt. Roberto Fajardo lauded the members of the anti-drug section of Caloocan Police Station for refusing to receive bribe money allegedly offered to them in exchange for the liberty of two suspected drug lords arrested over the weekend.
The operatives arrested Christina Quintan who offered a bribe of P100,000 and a .45-caliber Kimber Yonkers gun in exchange for the release of two high-value illegal-drug peddlers, who were earlier arrested in a drug buy bust operation on Gen. San Miguel, Barangay 8 on the midnight of September 24.
The Caloocan police and Region III director Aaron Aquino were tipped by an informant in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan on a high-value drug peddler trading in the city.
Operatives of the Caloocan police and station anti illegal drugs-special operation task group captured Quintan’s husband Angelito and Eddie Paunan in a buy-bust operation at 4:30 p.m. Friday also on Gen. San Miguel.
About 126 grams of suspected shabu in five medium plastic sachets worth P240,000 were confiscated.
Police said Quintan has been charged for violation of Article 212 of the Revised Penal Code (corruption of public officials) and Republic Act 10591.
