CASTILLEJOS, Zambales – An army intelligence officer, who passed himself off as a New People’s Army rebel for his extortion activities, was nabbed by joint operatives of the PNP-SAF, 315th Zambales Provincial Mobile Group and Castillejos PNP during an entrapment at Sitio Mawao, Bgy. San Pablo, here Thursday night.

Zambales Provincial Police Office director Supt. Rolando Felix identified the suspect as Pfc. Ronald Tumbali, 31, assigned at Charlie Company, 3rd Infantry Battalion, 7th Infantry Division at the Army base in Sitio Dulit, Bgy. Nagbunga.

Tumbali’s alleged accomplice, a certain Pfc. Bautista, eluded arrest and is now being hunted by police.

Reports added Tumbali claimed to be an NPA member last November and started demanding money from farm manager Philip Pangan who gave the suspect an initial

The following he again demanded another P10, 000, prompting police operatives to stage the sting.

The suspect is now detained at Castillejos detention cell, facing charges of robbery – extortion, grave threats and RA 8294 before Assistant Provincial Prosecutor Joy Bayona.
