WALTER Labrado Oliamot earned P250 every day when he still worked as a glass installer and it was not enough to help his seven younger siblings.
The 23-year-old elementary dropout’s income ballooned to P30,000 per day when he joined the illegal drug trade of his friend last November.
“I bought clothes for me, my siblings and parents with my first profit,” he said in Cebuano in an interview.
Oliamot, however, was caught by anti-narcotics operatives in a drug bust inside a motel on V. Rama Ave. in Barangay Calamba, Cebu City on Wednesday dawn, February 28. He yielded 400 grams of suspected shabu worth P4.7 million, a value set by the Dangerous Drugs Board.
