Yakumaru (薬丸 Yakumaru) is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.
Yakumaru is a narcotics officer. He seems to have been working for at least a while since he is put on a big case. His rank is unknown. He is also a pharmaceutical student at an University in Osaka and lives near Kazuha's home. He works for the ministry of health who employs him as a narcs officer and investigator. He has at his disposition many men he can use in missions which proposes his rank is high. He is also the one directly contacting the head of investigations of the ministry of health. He has a certain basis in knowledge about pharma and drugs which gave him the opportunity to be hired.
Yakumaru is serious, probably on mission only, and does the job right. He can easily camouflage himself since Heiji mistook him for a drug dealer.
Yakumaru is a tall and skinny young man. He has white dyed hair and is dressed leniently since he needs to do so to blend in with the drug dealers. He also has a lizard-shaped black tatto and has a piercing on his nose. He has light beard. His appearance is allowed by the ministry of health since he is not exactly a police detective.
In this case, the detective boys encounter a drug dealer who pushes them and runs away as he is chased by officers. Looking at the ground, the detective boys see that he dropped a map and deduce with Heiji that it shows the destination of drug trades and that the last one would be on the Ebisu bridge in Osaka to which Heiji and Kazuha decide to go to. Arrived there, they see 3 suspicious men and find out Yakumaru (who was talking to Kazuha) was supposed to be the drug trader. Then, thinking he is going to kidnapp Kazuha, Heiji yells at Yakumaru and tries to fight but he finds out that the drug dealers were disarmed and that he was a narcotics officer.
When Heiji, Kazuha, Conan, Ran and Sonoko were invited to the Suzuki Museum to see the fairy's lip (world's largest conch pearl), Conan, as he met Heiji, makes him remember the case when he yelled "What are you going to do to my Kazuha-chan", we see a flashback of the case and Yakumaru also.
Heiji yelled at him thinking he was a drug dealer.
They discussed together and seemed to get along pretty well since Yakumaru is Kazuha's neighbor. He seems pretty kind towards her and even orders his men to protect her which Heiji thought was a kidnapping.
