Another Cop Busted for Extortion

Bernard Villanueva

Police Officer Bernard Villanueva who is attached to the Bella Vista Police Station has been arrested and charged for extortion. Villanueva was busted in a sting operation following a report made by twenty-eight year old Jeydi Romero who claimed that the cop had suggested that she cough up two hundred dollars for the release of her husband, Nahun Romano.  At about seven-thirty on January second, Independence police officers went into action and photocopied four twenty-dollar notes and two fifty-dollar notes. Hours later they deployed resident, Mario Cruz, to carry out the operation. He did, delivering the marked money to Villanueva, who promptly released Nahun upon receiving the extortion funds. Police then proceeded to arrest and charge Villanueva.

    Villanueva was doing this shit from long time, this was one of many more he have done. Nobody can force you to do something that you want we are not children to allow someone manipulate you guys like that. Villanueva, Choco and the next police of Bella vista are doing unrighteous things and 3 of them have to pay for it.
