Agents of the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency in Central Visayas (PDEA 7) shot dead an alleged drug peddler and arrested three of the latter’s alleged cohorts in a drug bust in Barangay Calamba, Cebu City past 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
Christopher Scholtis allegedly tried to engage law enforcers in a shootout when he learned that he and a certain Danny Bao transacted with an undercover agent said PDEA 7 Director Yogi Filemon Ruiz.
The agents seized a total of 2.4 kilos of shabu worth P15.6 million and a .45 caliber pistol. Bao eluded arrest.
