PNP arrested SPO1 Gomercido Digma for extorting a woman with a sensitive video
MARIKINA CITY — The Philippine National Police (PNP) arrested a policeman in an entrapment operation in Marikina City over the weekend for extorting money from a woman by threatening her with the exposure of a sensitive video.
All because of P5,000, SPO1 Gomercido Digma is now facing robbery extortion charges after Jenny, not her real name, reported him to the PNP-Counter Intelligence Task Force (CITF).
CITF chief PSSupt. Jose Chiquito Malayo said Digma is an investigator at San Mateo Police Station.
Digma allegedly saw the sex video of Jenny from her boyfriend who is detained at the police station of San Mateo.
“Kinakalikot ng suspect ang cellphone at nakita na may video na sensitive. Ang ginawa nya kinontak nya itong babae na involve in exchange for some money para isauli sa kanya yung sensitive video (The suspect was tinkering with [Jenny’s boyfriend’s] cellphone and saw the sensitive video. He got in touch with the woman and asked money in exchange for the return of the video),” PSSupt. Jose Chiquito Malayo said.
Based on the exchange of text messages between the victim and the suspect, Jenny pleaded with Digma to delete the cellphone video so it will no longer spread.
The suspect then saw the opportunity to sell the said video.
“Sabi nya kung kaya ko daw ba ng P5,000 kapalit nung video ko, bakit nya tinransfer ang video sa phone nya eh nasa CP yung ng boyfriend ko. Ibig sabihin may interes siya at pwedeng kumalat yun (He asked if I can pay him 5,000 pesos in exchange for my video. I’m wondering why he transferred the video to his phone when it was in boyfriend’s CP. It means he has other ideas and it could go viral),” Jenny said.
This prompted Jenny to report the incident to the police. The suspect was then arrested in an entrapment operation last night at a restaurant in JP Rizal Marikina City.
