Oct 14, 2021

BAGUIO CITY (October 14, 2021) – An AWOL cop, even dreaming to become a Mt. Province town mayor, was caught with four others including a government hospital employee early Wednesday morning, when they tried to sneak out over P2.2 million worth of marijuana bricks in Sadanga, Mt. Province.

Sonny Kidit Kalaw, 36, a former Manila policeman who went AWOL, together with Jonathan Fomanos Abella, 37, an employee of the Bontoc General Hospital from Brgy. Gawana, Barlig, Mt. Province;  17 year old student Darryl Damaso Sinong from Brgy. Batayan, Tadian, Mt. Province; construction worker Jeric Arzadon Sansano, 30, from Nueva  Viscaya but temporarily living at Brgy. Fuyayeng, Bontoc, Mt. Province and construction worker Samson Amiling Damaso, 28, also from Tadian, Mt. Province but since had been living at Brgy. Samoki, Bontoc were flagged down 7:30AM Wednesday at sitio Oowayen, barangay Poblacion, Sadanga town trying to smuggle out nineteen dried marijuana leaves in brick form that weighed at least 19 kilos valued at P2,280,000 .

PDEA-Cordillera director Gil Castro said agents aided by Sadanga policemen were tipped off of the contraband coming from Tinglayan, Kalinga passing through the Kalinga-Mt. Province route prompting an interdiction operation which turned out positive.

A black Toyota hiace grandia van with plate number POF 950, a weighing scale, assorted IDs, 16 fired cartidges for 9mm and 9 live ammunition for 9mm were also taken by authorities as evidences against the AWOL cop turned mayoralty bet and his cohorts.

The drug traders were brought to the Sadanga police station for booking except for the 17 year old who was turned over to the Sadanga social welfare office.
