Police on Saturday afternoon arrested two minors, aged 15 and 16, for allegedly selling illegal drugs to an undercover agent in Tagbilaran City.
Intelligence officers spotted the suspected drug dealers, both residents of Barangay Poblacion 2, as they were peddling shabu in the adjacent village of Cogon, police said.
Police then set up the buy-bust operation against the two minors under the supervision of Tagbilaran police chief Supt. Patricio Degay.
According to authorities, the minors sold shabu worth P500 to a police poseur-buyer leading to their immediate arrest.
The suspected drug peddlers were also allegedly caught in possession of nine sachets of shabu.
Police said that the seized drugs were estimated to be worth P10,000.
Both minors have been turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development in Tagbilaran City.
Police, meanwhile, were preparing to file charges against the teenagers. (wm)
