  • Police reminds everyone to be very careful in hiring nannies to avoid similar problems

On January 29, Angeline Mendoza got arrested for dognapping her master’s pet in Barangay Concepcion, Malabon in exchange for money.

Angeline took the shih tzu away on Janauray 15. Just this Monday, she contacted Billy, the pet owner whom she was working for as a nanny, to collect the ransom money worth Php 9,000.

Billy then decided to report the case to the police. Through an entrapment operation, the owner got his pet back and the policemen were able to arrest Angeline and a certain man named Edsmar Naba. The two suspects are now facing a robbery extortion charge.

According to the investigation, the nanny’s first intention was to sell the dog. But with no buyer, the suspect then decided to ask its owner for a ransom.

In the same ABS-CBN report, PO3 Julius Mabasa reminded everyone to be very careful in hiring nannies.
