FEATURED STORIES

Col. Jaime Santos, acting Nueva Ecija police director, said 17 sets of computers, an internet router and a modem used in the illegal cyber trade were also seized in the operation.

Santos said anti-drug policemen discovered the place while chasing a certain Ronnie Wagan who hid in the apartment to elude arrest during a drug buy-bust operation.

Police said the suspects were caught in the act of running pornographic websites that they sold to their clients.

Investigation said the suspects would also disguise as women to engage their clients in online chats.

The suspects would trade nude photos with their victims which they would later use for blackmail and to extort money.

Charges of violating the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 and human trafficking would be filed.
