Drug suspect’s kin yield P3-M shabu
(The Philippine Star) - April 20, 2017 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines -  The family of a detained drug suspect surrendered to the Quezon City police at least P3 million worth of shabu on Tuesday.

The relatives of Joseph Haldos turned over to authorities around a kilo of shabu, which he kept at the house of his friend at Sitio Pingkian in Barangay Pasong Tamo prior to his arrest.

Haldos’ wife surrendered the illegal drugs, a .45-caliber pistol and ammunition owned by the suspect, Superintendent Danilo Mendoza, Talipapa police station commander, said.

Mendoza said the family decided to turn over the contraband amid fears that they might be arrested by police.

Haldos was collared along with his cohort, Ronald Fagela, in a drug sting along Tandang Sora Avenue after they allegedly sold shabu to a police officer on April 1.

3 killed in shootings

Meanwhile, three men were killed by unidentified assailants in separate shootings in Quezon City on Tuesday.

Police identified the fatalities as Ramil Briones, 36; Rolito Nunez, 44, and Moises Pascua Jr., 33.

Briones and Nunez were shot dead while drinking with their friends along Commonwealth Avenue in Barangay Old Balara.

Probers said six masked men on three motorcycles opened fire at the group, hitting Briones and Nunez.

Briones died at the scene from gunshots to the body. Nunez was declared dead on arrival at the East Avenue Medical Center.

Pascua was talking with his friend when a motorcycle-riding assailant fired at him along San Isidro street in Barangay Holy Spirit.
