Cop yields P20-M
worth of cocaine
A POLICEMAN was arrested during a buy-
bust operation in Pasig City after he handed
four kilos of cocaine with a street value of
P20 million to operatives of the PNP Anti-
Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force.
Arrested was SPO1 Alexander Estabillo,
assigned at Philippine National Police Avia-
tion Security Group. He also yielded a hand-
gun during his arrest in Barangay Ugong in
Pasig City at around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Investigations showed that a police po-
seur buyer negotiated with Estabillo for the
purchase of cocaine for only P6 million.
