SORSOGON CITY – A former member of the Philippine Army was killed in a buy-buy-bust operation when he resisted arrest after selling to a poseur–buyer two heat sealed transparent sachets containing white crystalline substance suspected to be shabu Tuesday, June 26, at about 4:48 p.m. in Purok 7, barangay Cambulaga, this city, the police said.

Sorsogon City chief of police Supt Edison Albao Dumangas identified the victim as Ariel Marasigan Dimaala, a.k.a Marlon, 31 years old, a resident of said barangay and a native of Gumaca, Quezon.

Dumangas said the victim was a newly identified drugs personality. He was declared dead by Dr. Ruel Rebustillo, Sorsogon City Health Officer.

Dimaala was the second drugs personality to fall in five days after newly elected Punong Barangay Misael “Boboy” Hebres Larosa, 48 years old, married, of Brgy. Sampaloc, here, was collared June 22 by joint operatives of the PDEA and the police led by newly designated Sorsogon PDEA provincial officer Noe Briguel, also in a buy-bust operation with 15 grams of suspected shabu worth ₱60,000 found in his possession.

Larosa is a son of retired police Supt. Medard Larosa who is also the outgoing Punong Barangay of Sampaloc and former chief of police of then Sorsogon town.

Meanwhile, P/ Supt. Dumangas has stopped the operation of “Pula Puti” (an illegal gambling activity) in barangay Piot, this city, which tried to operate in anticipation of the influx of visitors here which will celebrate its fiesta June 28- 29.

Dumangas said he won’t tolerate any illegal activity on orders of Police Provincial Director SSupt. Marlon C. Tejada. [BicolToday.com]
