A 12-year-old boy allegedly used his mother's car to deal drugs on behalf of an adult, police said on Wednesday.
Police received a report on illegal car use by a minor in the Shfela region south of Tel Aviv, and found that the boy drove as far as Tel Aviv with the vehicle, while his friends sat inside as passengers.
A business owner in the area convinced them to move hashish and marijuana around, and used them to carry out a number of drug deals, a police spokeswoman added.
Police seized narcotics and electronic scales during a raid on the business owner's premises, and arrested the suspect.
The youths are also suspected of breaking into businesses and stealing goods. They were released to house arrest.
