BALANGA City, Bataan -- Police at dawn on Monday killed two suspected drug dealers who allegedly tried to fight it out with lawmen in two separate buy-bust operations here and Abucay town.

Police Sr. Supt. Benjamin Silo, Jr., Bataan police director, said slain in the armed encounters were Jayson Rodrigo and Roberto Morales, both from Barangay Gabon in Abucay.

Rodrigo was killed at 1:45 a.m. in Barangay Tuyo here while Morales was killed at 2:50 a.m. in Barangay Calaylayan in Abucay.

Silo said the operations were coordinated with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA).

Both drew their handguns and fired at their poseur-buyers after sensing that they were dealing with police operatives, he said. They both missed their targets and were killed by the police, he added.

Recovered from Rodrigo were a .38 caliber revolver with two fired cartridge cases, a sling bag containing seven medium size plastic sachets of shabu and a marked P500 bill.

Taken from Morales were a.38 caliber revolver with one fired cartridge, nine small size plastic sachets of shabu and also a marked P500 bill.

“Both were drug personalities in Bataan,” Col. Silo said.
