CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – Yet another suspected illegal drugs dealer who allegedly opted to shoot it out with cops rather than risk being arrested was killed in a buy-bust operation Saturday in Barangay Comillas in La Paz, Tarlac.
A report from the La Paz police identified the suspect as Roniel Marimla, a resident of Barangay Suizo in Tarlac City.
The report said the operation was launched by the local police in coordination with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency at about 11:30 a.m. Saturday in La Paz.
It said Marinla pulled out his .45 pistol and fired at approaching cops after a police poseur- buyer bought shabu from him.
In recent weeks, the Central Luzon police have reported at least five other suspected drug dealers who were shot dead after allegedly shooting at cops after buybust operations.
