AN 11-YEAR-OLD boy who was seen sitting outside the house of an alleged gang toughie in Sitio Tarcom, Barangay Busay, Cebu City on Thursday, September 15, admitted to using illegal drugs.

Calvin (not his real name) said that he and his two other companions had just consumed two sachets of shabu Thursday dawn.

Calvin admitted that he also acted as drug runner in the evening to earn money.

The minor was previously rescued by police four times but allegedly returned to his illegal drug activity after his release.

The interview on Calvin was done during a police operation that led to the arrest of William Banono, believed to be toughie of the Abella Gang that operates in Cebu City.

Seized from Banono were .45 pistol with eight bullets and 135 medium packs of shabu. (BBT, TPT)
