MANILA, Philippines – Another phone call made by then Pampanga provincial police chief Oscar Albayalde to a superior sometime in 2014 came back yesterday to haunt him at the Senate Blue Ribbon committee inquiry into the issue of “ninja cops,” or police officers involved in recycling illegal drugs.

Retired police general Rudy Lacadin testified that he conducted a discreet investigation into the raid by Pampanga policemen on a house in a subdivision in Mexico town on Nov. 29, 2013 where the raiders allegedly kept for themselves cash, vehicles and over 160 kilos of shabu with a street value at the time of over P650 million.

Lacadin testified that Albayalde called him up to ask about the probe. Albayalde made a remark indicating that he might have received a share of dirty money from the raid, Lacadin alleged.
