2 Quezon City cops attempt to extort money from a man who turned out to be the son of NCR police chief

Abigail Kwok of InterAksyon.com reports that "on the night of September 4 two policemen, identified as Senior Police Officer 4 Jose dela Pena and PO2 Resty del Rosario, on board QC-57 patrol car, accosted the vehicle of the son of Chief Supt. Leonardo Espina, incoming chief of the National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO)."


The report revealed the strange scenario: "Espina’s son had been parked on Santolan Road when the two reportedly accused him of engaging in phone sex and demanded ₱20,000 from him."


Noy Alquitran of The Philippine Star revealed what happened next: "After several minutes of haggling, the demand was reduced to ₱10,000 and Espina's son withdrew the money from his automated teller's machine (ATM) card at a nearby bank. After giving the money to De la Peña, Espina's son handed over his mobile phone to the policeman and asked him to talk to his father. When Espina identified himself, De la Peña let go of the son and drove off in a mobile car driven by Del Rosario."



Alquitran further revealed: "The elder Espina's aides coordinated with the QCPD. De la Peña and Del Rosario were stripped of their service firearms and subjected to an investigation prior to the filing of administrative cases against them."


We can’t help but wonder how many other people have been subjected to similar scams. What happens to you if your dad isn’t the NCRPO chief?
