DINGRAS, Ilocos Norte, Sept 23–Mostly teachers in general are poorly paid in their job. This was probably the reason why a male teacher allegedly resorted to suspected illegal activity. In a buy-bust operation, police seized from him a sachet of shabu and a marked money. However, he remains innocent until proven guilty by the court. His name was withheld to protect his reputation. A police chaplain said this case should serve as lesson to all professionals not to engage themselves in any nefarious trade because the long arm of the law will always go after them.
