A man in his 40s was arrested by police Friday morning on charges of using and possessing methamphetamine after being reported by a YouTuber.

The man is reported to have texted a woman on an anonymous chatting app proposing they have sex and take methamphetamine together, but the woman was a trap set by the YouTuber, who specializes in tracking downs.

The YouTuber told police at around 2:30 a.m. that he saw a man in possession of drugs in Seoul’s Mia-dong, Gangbuk-gu. Police were immediately dispatched to the scene and caught the man in six minutes.

Seoul Gangbuk Police Station said Friday that the 48-year-old, whose name has not been disclosed, is accused of breaching the Narcotics Control Act.
