Fil-Am faces probe, denies drug charges



MANILA, Philippines – The camp of Filipino-American arrested for possession of 10 kilos of shabu worth P50 million dared authorities to lift fingerprints and DNA samples from the government vehicle where the drugs were allegedly recovered.

During Monday’s preliminary investigation, 33-year-old Kevin Bryan Hills through counsel Raymond Palad said, “Wala kang makikita nyan maging buhok ni Bryan…Hindi nya ginamit yan o hinawakan. Never.”

The vehicle with government plate no. SEP 825 allegedly used by Hills was seized by the Philippine National Police Anti-Illegal Drugs Special Operations Task Force (AIDSOTF).


The AIDSOTF confiscated nine kilos of shabu from the Pajero, which was parked in a slot leased by Hills in Column Tower 2, Ayala Avenue.  The remaining 1 kilo was allegedly seized from Hill’s condominium unit.

Investigation showed that the vehicle was also used by a staff of lawmaker Juan Miguel “Mikey” Arroyo.

At the preliminary investigation, Hills denied being in possession of the 10 kilos of shabu. In his counter-affidavit, he said he was the wrong target of the police.

He said there was no test buy between him and the operatives on Nov. 7 at 9pm as alleged by the police because he was with his family in Baclaran, Paranaque where they belatedly celebrated his birthday.

Meanwhile, Prosecutor Ana Doreen Devanadera ordered for an actual inspection and stencil of the chassis and engine numbers of the subject Pajero which was brought to the Department of Justice.

“This is to compare the chassis and engine numbers with that indicated in the alleged OR-CR of the Pajero to prove that they are one and the same,” Devanadera said.

    Unfortunately, the police here in the Philippines are pretty much capable of fabricating just about anything. Examples: Paco Laranaga’s case, hulidap victims in UP Los Banos.

    The whole Los Banos police has been relieved because of the string of crimes in 2011 to 2012. But the hulidap victims will still be languishing in jail for 3+ years because of the slow justice system. It is not enough to simply strip the rogue cops of their badges – they should be the ones put behind bars.

    In Paco Laranaga’s case, it wasn’t really the judge that put him behind bars. The judge was at the mercy of the evidences and testimonies fabricated by the police.

    In the string of hulidap cases in UPLB, the hulidap team made from P60k to P150k per victim per night. Malaking negosyo!

    Magkano naman kaya ang sinisingil kay Kevin Bryan Hills? Most likely he refused to pay, kaya ayan, dinadaan na sa trial by publicity.
