LEGAZPI CITY –– A 16-year-old alleged drug pusher was caught selling P7,500 worth of “shabu” (crystal meth) on Wednesday afternoon at a drug sting in Tabaco City in Albay province, a police report said Thursday.

Captain Dexter Panganiban, Albay police spokesperson, said narcotics operatives arrested the minor, a resident of Barangay Baranghawon in the said village at 2:10 a.m.
