0 107

Police arrested an alleged National Bureau of Investigation consultant in an entrapment operation for supposedly demanding money in exchange for the release of two Chinese nationals.

The National Capital Region Police Office said suspect Larry Marbid was nabbed after receiving marked money from operatives.

As Marbid was being apprehended, Laurence Delos Tria tried to intervene, which resulted in the police arresting him for obstruction of justice.

The two suspects were brought to the Southern Police District for documentation and disposition.

The Chinese nationals were rescued.

Members of the NCRPO’s Regional Intelligence Division and the Special Operations Unit of the Southern Police District conducted the entrapment operation.

NCRPO chief Brig. Gen. Jonnel Estomo commended the operatives for a job well done and said the police would not let wrongdoers get away scot-free.

“Binabalaan ko ang mga mapagsamantala na kayo ay hindi makakalagpas sa batas sapagkat patuloy ang paglulunsad namin ng mga operasyon laban sa mga kagaya niyong mapagsamantala,” Estomo said.

He also called on the public to report illegal activities to law enforcers, and they would act on it.

“Sa ating mga kababayan, huwag kayong matakot at magdalawang isip na magsumbong. Tulong tulong tayo upang mas mapadali ang paghuli sa mga kriminal na kagaya nito,” he said.
