October 26, 2019

MEMBERS of Galas Police Station (PS 11) under Lt. Col. Alex Alberto Friday evening arrested in a buy-bust an armed and dangerous 34-year-old man who yielded a hand grenade apart from shabu.

Acting Quezon City Police District (QCPD) director Col. Ronnie Montejo identified the suspect as John April Cobarrubias of 246 E. Rodriguez St., Blvd. Brgy. Damayang Lagi.

Elements of PS 11 and the suspect agreed to meet around 6 p.m. along 14th Street, corner La Felonila Street in Brgy. Damayang Lagi where a cop posing as buyer would buy shabu from Cobarrubias.

After the undercover officer handed the buy-bust money and received five sachets of shabu, policemen arrested the suspect.

Apart from the illegal item, the lawmen also confiscated a sling bag which yielded a hand grenade.

As he commended his men Montejo advised them to be extra careful in every anti-drug mission.  

Scores of cops have already been killed in different anti-drug operations in the country.
