NEWSPIX: 12 arrested in drive vs ‘vulca’ boys in Butuan

Police authorities arrested at least 12 “vulca boys” who were allegedly caught sniffing Vulcaseal, a brand of sealant product and other solvents following a tip from a concerned citizen inside a cemetery in Barangay Lapu Lapu in, Butuan City on Sunday.

The proliferation of vulca boys in the streets of downtown Butuan were blamed on the lack of proper parental guidance and attention at home, and easy access to hardware stores selling and distributing aromatic solvents and sealant products.

Officials said the arrest was only the beginning of a continuing crackdown on those addicted to solvents -mostly street children coming from the “poorest of the poor.” By GD Photos courtesy if Bcpo Bcps-l
