PNP Chief Police Director General Ronald Dela Rosa held a media briefing on the notable accomplishments of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group and Anti-Kidnapping Group in April 10, 2018 at the National Headquarters in Camp Crame.
PNP CIDG arrested a couple last April 4, suspected to be leaders of an online investment scam using bitcoin and lured more than 50 victims.
Arnel Ordonio, 27, and his wife Leonady Ordonio are the registered owners of NewG, a company allegedly soliciting investments from unsuspecting investors.
CIDG conducted an entrapment operation which resulted in the arrests of the suspects.
More or less 900 Million pesos have been amassed from the victims who believed in the couple's false promise of huge amount of interest in a short span of time.
Meanwhile, the AKG has arrested his abductors and successfully rescued the Japanese national Yuji Nakajima who was kidnapped last March 22, 2018.
Arrested were Roberto Reyes and Reggie Reyes of Pasig City; and Japanese national and fugitive Mr. Miyashita Takashi.
Continuous manhunt operations are still being conducted by AKG operatives to arrest other suspects involved in the abduction of Yuji Nakajima.
