MANILA – Actress Agot Isidro on Sunday lost around P3 million in cash and jewelry to suspected members of “dugo-dugo gang” in Quezon City.
According to Police Officer 2 Marlon dela Vega of the Quezon City Police District-Criminal Investigation and Detection Unit, Isidro’s house help Maenelyn Omapas received a call from an unidentified woman.
The caller told Omapas that Isidro was involved in a vehicular accident and thus needs money to settle with a person identified as Ana Chua.
Omapas was instructed to bring cash and jewelry and to bring it to Wilcon Home Depot store in Balintawak. After she gave the bag containing the money and jewelry, she was asked to return home to Isidro’s residence at Blue Ridge Subdivision in Quezon City.
When she got home, Omapas realized that she was deceived after realizing that Isidro was still at work.
According to Dela Vega, they are still investigating the incident.
As of writing, Isidro has not commented on the issue.
