Manila, Philippines – Arestado ang tatlong indibidwal kasama ang dalawang lineman sa Talisay City, Cebu sa pangingikil ng pera sa mga residenteng naapektuhan ng brownout dahil sa bagyong Odette, ayon sa National Bureau of Investigation (NBI).

Tinukoy ng NBI ang mga naarestong sina Maximo Baguio Mariot Jr. at Visayas Electric Company (VECO) linemen Doroteo Valmoria Auxtero Jr. at Bryan Burlaos Sacmar.

“The arrested subjects will be charged with violation of Republic Act No. 7832 (Anti-Electricity and Electric Transmission Lines/Materials Pilferage Act of 1994),” lahad ng NBI.

Sinabing nahuli si Mariot na tumatanggap ng pera sa ikinasang entrapment operation ng operatiba ng Central Visayas Regional Office (NBI-CEVRO) ng NBI noong Enero 25.

“The operatives were able to recover from the subjects the marked money, VECO ID and assorted IDs of Subject Mariot, cash bills, three smart phones, one (1) VECO jacket, and one (1) bundle of VECO billing statements.”

 “The NBI-CEVRO immediately conducted a surveillance operation to verify the veracity of the information and was able to confirm that Subject Mariot is demanding money from the consumers of VECO in exchange for immediate restoration of electricity,” dagdag pa rito.

“The operatives were also able to discover that Subject Mariot disregarded safety protocol and would merely connect electricity from any available source.” RNT/FGDC
