- A 3-yr-old child was used by his parents in selling illegal drugs in Cotabato City
- The parents were arrested while the 15-yr-old buyer was brought to the DSWD
The parents of a 3-year-old were arrested after they used their own child in selling illegal drugs in Cotabato City.
It was clearly shown how the innocent child handed over a plastic bag to a buyer in a video shared by GMA News on Tuesday.
“Almost mga two weeks na namin silang mino-monitor. Posibleng ma-aggravate pa ‘yung kaso nila kasi nga gumagamit sila ng bata,” said the chief of Cotabato City Station 2, Chief Inspector Rey Delantein.
[We have been monitoring them for almost two weeks. Their case can be aggravated further because they were using a child.]
Aside from the parents, the authorities also cuffed the 15-year-old buyer of the pack of illegal drugs.
The buyer is now under the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD.)
