Nuyda told the police that her illegal drug supplier was from Quiapo, Manila.
Nuyda surrendered to the police in 2016, but San Juan City Police Chief Senior Superintendent Dindo Reyes said she failed to undergo the community-based drug rehabilitation program.
The suspect's family has been involved in peddling illegal drugs in San Juan City since 2013. Her father was arrested in a buy-bust operation in 2015, while her mother was arrested on a buy-bust operation in 2017.
Nuyda had stopped her drug operations temporarily due to the arrest of her parents, but the police had received a tip that she had revived her illegal drug business. – Rappler.com
