This goes to show that people doing drugs stop thinking straight.
With the current administration’s crackdown on drugs, the cop in this story really should have known better. We expect more from an active member of the Philippine National Police (PNP).
Cebu Provincial Police Director Senior Superintendent Clifford Gairanod confirmed that Police Officer 2 (PO2) Ronjie Nadora, 36, who is part of the pecial Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) group of Bogo City, was arrested during the buy-bust operation against a certain Neil Enriquez, 38.
As it turns out, Nadora was not only a drug user but also a drug protector.
“Gairanod further revealed Nadora has been included in the watch list of police officers engaged in illegal drugs. He explained that they received reports from concerned citizens that Nadora served as an escort in the delivery of illegal drugs to Enriquez’s house in Sitio Harag, Barangay Talavera, Toledo City,” reports Rhea Soco on ABS-CBNnews.com.
In fact, Enriquez was wearing a SWAT shirt with the name of Nadora when caught by the police inside the house of the subject. Nadora was right there with him along with two other men: Richard Flores, 30, and Nanding Abella, 23.
The report noted: “Recovered from the suspects were a .357 revolver with four live ammunitions, an improvised shotgun with four live ammunitions and 19 small sachets believed to contain shabu.”
In any case, Gairanod added that “there are still other police officers in the watch list of Cebu Provincial Police Officer who are under surveillance.”
