Police end happy days of two top drug pushers in Pili, Camarines sur


The top drug peddlers in Pili, Camarines Sur are falling like flies.

Killed by police during a buy-bust operation Saturday night (September 4) was Beda Magistrado, who was tagged as the number two person in the municipality’s drug watchlist.

A PNA report said the buy-bust took place at Purok 4, Barangay Cadlan, Pili at 8:30 p.m.

Philippine National Police (PNP) Spokesperson, Senior Inspector Ma. Luisa Calubaquib bared that a .38 caliber pistol and two plastic sachets of shabu were recovered from Magistrado.

The suspect, sensing that his “buyer” was an undercover cop, reportedly drew his firearm and was shot by the operatives as a result.

Calubaquib said that before the buy-bust against Magistrado, the operatives had arrested Alex Advincula of Barangay San Jose, Pili, at 5:30 p.m.

Advincula, who was tagged as number four in the municipal drug watchlist, tipped off police about Magistrado’s illegal drug activities.

Advincula claimed that Magistrado served as his drug supplier.
