High school student caught peddling ‘shabu’

A HIGH school student was arrested in an anti-narcotics operation afternoon of Nov. 6, 2018 in San Jose, Antique.

Seventeen-year old Jojo (not his real name), a Grade 10 of Buhang National High School in Buhang, Hamtic town, was collared after selling a sachet of suspected shabu for P500.

Jojo, who hails from Barangay Egaña, Sibalom town, yielded with 4 sachets  of suspected shabu, a mobile phone, and a motorcycle.

Superintendent Mark Anthony Darroca, San Jose police chief, said the suspect is a newly identified drug personality in the area who allegedly began selling marijuana about a month ago.

His customers are mostly students in the area, Darroca said.

From marijuana, police later learned that he sold shabu, too.

In Sibalom, police claimed that several cousins of Jojo were involved in theft and robbery incidents but they were never arrested.
