A middle-aged woman and an 11-year-old student fell into the hands of anti-narcotics agents after they were caught selling 100 grams of “shabu” in Quiapo, Manila, over the weekend.

The female drug pusher, along with her minor accomplice, sold P120,000-worth of shabu, or metamphetamine hydrochloride, to undercover agents which led to their arrest on F. Hidalgo street last Sunday, the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency said.
