According to police reports, "the Professor" is a 31-year-old man who holds a graduate degree from a prestigious university in China.
He had been a probationary teacher at several middle schools in his hometown before starting his career as a drug kingpin by reselling drugs in an online chat group.
According to district police, around 200 kilograms of illegal marijuana and other drugs were confiscated from the suspect.
Most of the identified users of illegal substances are college and high school students.

"The group mainly used online instant messaging tools to contact each other, and the transactions were conducted on third-party platforms," said the local police.
According to the report, the sellers use tea as concealment packages for the illegal drugs which are transported through package orders during the trafficking and sales process.
Police captured five suspects in the case in Weifang, Shandong province as well as in Suifenhe and Mudanjiang, Heilongjiang province in late June. Another eight suspects were captured between July and late October.
Twenty greenhouses which were used for growing marijuana were raided by authorities and later destroyed. The police have confiscated more than 130 kilograms of marijuana and 20 kg of non-manufactured drugs. More than 4,000 fresh marijuana plants were also taken from the illegal plantation.
