Information reaching the PNP headquarters reveals that on Sep 8, 2022, a certain Soraida Dimalutang, mother of victim Jaylou Turno, came to Iligan City Police Station 1 and sought for assistance regarding her missing son who was allegedly kidnapped by the family of his girlfriend.
According to the complainant, her son informed her that he will go to the house of his girlfriend a day before Mrs. Dimalutang went to the police station.
Following that, she was surprised upon receiving a call from the relatives of his son’s girlfriend asking for a sum of money in return of her son’s release.
Upon determining enough grounds, joint elements of Iligan, the Anti-Kidnapping Group, Iligan CPS5 and RSOU 10 launched an entrapment operation against the suspects.
The operating teams delivered the ransom money of P10,000 at the agreed place and time which then led to the subsequent arrest of the suspects.
