ILI­GAN CITY – Po­lice res­cued five mi­nors and ar­rested a mother dur­ing a raid on a cy­ber­sex den tar­get­ing chil­dren at Purok San Miguel, Barangay Tu­bod here, Wed­nes­day.

The op­er­a­tion was con­ducted by mem­bers of the Women and Chil­dren Pro­tec­tion Cen­ter-Min­danao Field Unit (WCPC-FEU), Ili­gan City Po­lice Of­fice and Depart­ment of So­cial Wel­fare and De­vel­op­ment.

Po­lice iden­ti­fied the sus­pect as Jene­lyn Ym­bong Delostrico, the al­leged oper­a­tor of the cy­ber­sex den. Re­cov­ered from her was cel­lu­lar phone.

Se­nior In­spec­tor James M. Da­leon, Ili­gan City Po­lice Sta­tion 4 com­man­der, said the sus­pect was traced through her Face­book ac­count where trans­ac­tions for on­line pornog­ra­phy were made.

“Ang ac­count ng sub­ject natin ay na­pa­sok ng mga in­ves­ti­ga­tor natin na nag­pa­pang­gap na clients; mga for­eign­ers ang mga in­ves­ti­ga­tor,” Da­leon said.

The sus­pect sent nude pho­tos and videos of the mi­nors aged two to 10, one of whom is her daugh­ter while the four oth­ers are her neigh­bors.

Jene­lyn said she re­ceived ₱1,000 and ₱1,500 only from her clients.

The po­lice of­fi­cial said Jene­lyn’s daugh­ter, 10, in­vited the other kids to play in­side their small rented house, fed them and gave them choco­lates while the mother was tak­ing videos of them. “Hindi alam ng mga bata na binivideo­han sila,” Da­leon said.

He added that the par­ents of the other kids got mad at the sus­pect af­ter learn­ing of the in­ci­dent.

The sus­pect will be slapped with hu­man traf­fick­ing, child ex­ploita­tion, child abuse, and child pornog­ra­phy charges.
