A policeman was arrested by operatives of the City Police Special Operations Task Group when they allegedly caught him in a drug den at Lopez Jaena Street in Brgy. 20, Bacolod City, during a buy-bust operation at about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Supt. Jefferson Descallar, commander of the SOG, said yesterday that Police Officer 3 Leri Lumawag, 37, of Candoni in Negros Occidental, was nabbed for visiting a drug den.

Descallar said the operatives did not recover any illegal drugs from Lumawag, and that he pretended to be sleeping when the raiding team arrived.moremoremore
