Two peo­ple were ar­rested for al­legedly giv­ing po­lice money for the re­lease of a com­pan­ion de­tained at the San Ni­co­las Po­lice Sta­tion last Sun­day evening.

Judy Ann So­bre­villa, 21, and Eli­azar Pilo­ton, both res­i­dents of Sitio Al­macin, Barangay Calamba, were ap­pre­hended by po­lice after they al­legedly gave P10,000 to an of­fi­cer.

The lover of So­bre­villa’s sis­ter, Al­bren An­thony Abenoha, landed in prison after a buy-bust op­er­a­tion con­ducted by po­lice ear­lier that day.

Con­fis­cated from Abenoha were il­le­gal drugs worth P7,480.

“Ni of­fer na sila og ten thou­sand para buhi-an or i-lower ang case sa nadak­pan,” said Ban­co­leta, chief of po­lice in San Ni­co­las Sta­tion. (They of­fered to pay P10,000 for the re­lease of the sus­pect or to lower the case.)

The two re­port­edly tried to of­fer money to the op­er­a­tives and they were given a warn­ing by the of­fi­cers.

Ban­co­leta added that the two went back to the sta­tion and brought money with them.

So­bre­villa al­legedly ne­go­ti­ated with au­thor­i­ties while Pilo­ton handed the P10,000 money.

For her part, So­bre­villa did not ex­pect things to turn out the way they did.

“Ka­tong kwarta gi tam­potampo rato namo mga paryente, unya wala mi kahibalo. Gi­in­gon ra padad-on mig kwarta, amo sad gi­hata­gag kwarta sa kauban nako (Pilo­ton),” said So­bre­villa. (The money was col­lected from our rel­a­tives. We were only told to bring the money here and my com­pan­ion gave it to the po­lice.)
