LUCENA City -- National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) agents implemented five search warrants on suspected cybersex dens at separate places here, resulting in the rescue of six gays working as players and the seizure of various sexual paraphernalia.
NBI-Quezon chief agent Dominador Villanueva identified those rescued during the raids as Jonathan Par, 28, of Bgy. Isabang, Tayabas City; Aldrin Joeven Panaligan, 18, of Bgy. Sta. Elena, Atimonan, Quezon; Domingo Salceda, 31, Aldrin Magpantay, 28, both of this city; Sandro Flores, 20, of Bgy. Mateuna, Tayabas City; and Franz Oca, 24, of Bgy. San Anton, San Pablo City.
Armed with five search warrants issued by San Pablo City Regional Trial Court Judge Agripino G. Morga, Villanueva said they carried out the simultaneous search operations in the presence of village officials.
He said the maintainer and operators of the dens were all not around during the raids and have already left following the earlier raid conducted by police operatives.
“According to our ‘assets’, our target operators have already left when they learned of the operation earlier conducted by the police,” said Villanueva.
Villanueva was referring to the operation earlier carried out by joint elements of PNP Anti-Cyber Crime Group (PNP-ACG), Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG)-Quezon Regional Public Safety Battalion and Quezon Police Provincial Office, resulting in the arrest of a gay operator and six of his transgender ‘players’ while in the act of performing live indecent live show in front of a web camera inside a well-fenced house at Phase 2 of St. Jude Subd., Bgy. Mayao Crossing, here.
Villanueva said they also recovered two computer sets, Internet modem, sex toys, speakers, cables, computer headsets, AVR, lampshades, assorted make-up kits, assorted apparels/dresses and assorted sexy photographs.
Only last year, the group also raided another cybersex den, resulting in the arrest of gay sex workers at Bgy. 3.
