Arresting the boy while putting a package, he confessed that he worked for a central prison inmate. He also led police to about 50 grams of heroin he hid at his house.
The boy also told police that at first he received a call from an unknown person, who offered him KD5 for each delivery he made. He added that he later on learnt that he worked for an inmate.
The boy added that he usually received a call from the inmate, telling him where to pick up the packages till further notice. A case was filed and the inmate is being summoned for further investigations.
