SAN NICOLAS, Ilocos Norte, Jan. 12– Eight-month-old pregnant Josephine Reyes, 35, of Bulacan was arrested during a buy-bust operation at Brgy. 11, this town, lawmen reported.

She didn’t resist arrest when a joint Laoag-San Nicolas operatives nabbed her at a boarding house where she rented a room three days ago.

Chief Inspector Adriano Licudan of the Laoag PNP said the suspect, who is also under drug watch list in Laoag, admitted she owned the seized shabu in four sachets valued at P1,000.
