She was arrested by operatives during a drug-bust operation on June 13, 2021, at about 3:00 a.m. in Barangay Aduas Norte, Cabanatuan City.

Eleazar said authorities were able to capture Santos after a policeman posing as a buyer was able to purchase a piece of heat-sealed transparent plastic sachet containing white substance believed to be shabu.
