A car wash boy was arrested Friday morning in Barangay Rio Tuba, Bataraza for allegedly peddling shabu to an anti-narcotics undercover agent.
A regional police report from P/Lt. Colonel Socrates Faltado identified him as Esnaje Indih Iku, a resident of the same barangay.
He was arrested by personnel of the Bataraza municipal police in a buy-bust operation around 3 a.m. on November 15. Confiscated from him was a piece of heat-sealed transparent plastic with suspected shabu and the P500 marked money.
Iku also had P9,300 and several other items that were confiscated.
