A police officer assigned in Manila was arrested by agents of the National Bureau of Investigation- National Capital Region (NBI-NCR) for reselling illegal drugs and drugs paraphernalia that were confiscated during past operations.
Arrested was Police Officer 2 Jolly Aliangan of the Philippine National Police Regional Anti-Illegal Drugs Division of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) at his three-storey house in Balic-Balic, Sampaloc, Manila on Tuesday, May 24.
Also arrested were the police officer’s wife and his cousin, Jeffrey Gutierrez, who was later identified as a civilian of the NCRPO.
Argyll Cyrus Geducos of Manila Bulletin wrote that according to NBI-NCR regional director Atty. Max Salvador, Aliangan’s arrest came following reports they received that a certain individual was moving drugs from the so-called Bilibid 19. It was also revealed after further probe that the subject was a police officer assigned at the NCRPO.
“Noon pa may information na about some people moving illegal drugs from the Bilibid. ‘Yun ang pinagtuunan namin ng pansin hanggang sa makuha namin ang pangalan,” Salvador said.
[We have information that some people were moving illegal drugs from Bilibid. We focused our attention to that until we got a name.]
The raid on Aliangan’s house yielded several unlicensed firearms and a vault that contains several grams of shabu (methamphetamine hydrochloride) and an undisclosed amount of cash.
Salvador disclosed that Aliangan’s wife flushed some of the suspected shabu down the toilet.
Expensive chandeliers, a home theater system, and a high-end refrigerator were also found inside the suspect’s house.
