SANTIAGO CITY, Isabela – A senior citizen who has supposedly taken over the drug business of her son was nabbed by police Tuesday here.

Police identified the suspect as Brigida de Leon alias Aida de Leon, 75, mother of Johny de Leon, tagged as the city’s “shabu king” prior to him being killed in a police operation last year.

According to authorities, they have been monitoring the activities of the older De Leon since, going on to include her on the government’s drug watch list.
