Cops abort search to
A raid on the house of a suspected illegal numbers game “swertres” coordinator in Tanjay City, Negros Oriental, by the police was aborted when occupants of the house resisted, prompting the law enforcers to withdraw to avoid a violent confrontation Tuesday night.
The foiled plan to serve a search warrant was aggravated by the alleged refusal of barangay officials to participate as witnesses in the police operation.
The search warrant, dated Oct. 18, 2011 and issued by Judge Winston Villegas of the Regional Trial Court Branch 43, was for the house of suspected “swertres” coordinator, Procolo Gazo, of Barangay Azagra, Tanjay City, police reports said.
