Gairanod: Jaguar to surrender in Crame
The Cebu Provincial Police Office (CPPO) received feelers that Central Visayas’ biggest drug dealer is set to surrender.
But it wouldn’t be here in Cebu, according to CPPO Chief Senior Supt. Clifford Gairanod.
Gairanod told reporters in an interview yesterday that according to sources outside, Jeffrey “Jaguar” Diaz will surrender in Camp Crame.
But Gairanod said they continue to search for Diaz and even conducted monitoring and surveillance on his whereabouts.
Places in Cebu province where he was sighted have also been under surveillance including the houses of his relatives that he visited.
Gairanod said they received information that Diaz is now out of Region 7.
He cited that the absence of a warrant of arrest has hindered them from arresting Diaz.
Meanwhile, Gairanod again warned police protectors for the last time to stop protecting drug lords or drug pushers in their area.
He said he made this last warning during a meeting with station commanders and intelligence officers last week.
“Nagsugod sila sa una pa; nagsige na ko ug buyag. Karon, dili na ko mobuyag. Last chance na to nila last week. So kahit COP (chief of police), we will not hesitate. Mosukol gali, aw, at the end of the gunfire, sila gyud ang mobulagta,” he told reporters.
Gairanod said there are less than ten policemen who belong to the list of protectors submitted to him by the public and local officials.
He added that 80 percent of them have been verified to have been involved in protecting drug dealers in the area. This is verified through their intelligence operatives.
Gairanod said he has not yet relieved them from their designations.
“Wala lang usa gipang-relieve kay ma-encounter namin itong mga gagong ito, mapatay to or makulong kaysa ilipat nimo, magsugod na sad ta sa zero,” he added.
Based on information he received, the new police officers that are assigned as chiefs of police in certain towns are being offered money in return for protection.
The offer ranges from P15,000 to P25,000.
“I told them, ‘I can look at you in the eye. Not worth mentioning your name. You know who you are,’” he told them during a meeting last week.
Gairanod said they are also verifying reports of policemen who are drug couriers themselves.
