‘drug dealer' surrenders
BY CARLA GOMEZ

The No. 3 man on Silay City's drug watchlist surrendered yesterday to Mayor Mark Golez and turned in a grenade, two guns and ammunition.

“I surrendered because I am afraid I will be killed, I've seen what has been happening in Manila,” said Aldrin Orquia Dejelo, 32, of Barangay Mambulac, Silay City.

His surrender came a day after Alain Gamboa, 32, of Barangay 1, Silay, who has been tagged as Silay's number one drug pusher and supplier, also surrendered to Golez.

NORPPO confirms presence
of vigilante groups in NegOr
BY JUDY F. PARTLOW & JUANCHO GALLARDE

Senior Supt. Harris Fama, acting director of the Negros Oriental Police Provincial Office, has confirmed the presence of vigilante groups in Negros Oriental, who are obviously ready to help the law enforcers in the campaign against illegal drugs.

Surrender or else these vigilante groups could take you out, was Fama's warning message to the "drug pushers and users" in an interview with the media Thursday.

Fama, however, made it clear the PNP will not allow vigilante killings to take place although he admitted the police may not be able to prevent this from happening. .
