Ang kapal ng mukha! CamSur village councilman netted for extortion
Happy days are over for a Barangay councilman and two “tanods” of Barangay San Miguel, Bato, Camarines Sur after they were collared for extortion.
Arrested in an entrapment operation were Councilman Oscar Calleja, 60, of Zone 2, San Miguel and tanods Edison Layderos, 55 and Mario Sandrino, 45.
According to a Brigada News FM Naga report Saturday (April 22), the trio tried to extort P50,000 from businessman Avelino Oliveros, also a local resident.
Elements of the Bato Municipal Police Station staged the entrapment after Oliveros sought help from them.
The money was placed in an envelope, which was received by the suspects during the operation. The cops then pounced on the trio.
Sandrino yielded a nine-inch long fan knife, the same report said.
