Members of the content creator group ‘Tukomi’ were put behind bars after their viral prank last April.
On August 7, members of the PNP served the warrant against the content creators who were identified as Mark Lester Gallego, Mark Hiroshi Gallego, and Eleazar Austria.
They’re facing alarm and scandal charges due to the prank they pulled.
During the said prank, the members of the group created a scene in Las Piñas City where they pretended to abduct someone.
An off-duty officer Police Staff Sergeant Ronnie Conmigo, who was present in that area during that time almost used his firearm to stop the group after he thought that there was really an abduction happening.
Because of the dangerous prank they did, Conmigo filed a complaint against the group to discourage other content creators to do the same thing.
Even the PNP warned other content creators not to do such pranks.
“Muntik ng magkaroon ng hindi magandang insidente out of this prank kaya gusto ko sanang manawagan sa pamamagitan nito ay mabigyan kami ng pagkakataon na masabi ang side dito.” Las Piñas police chief Col. Jaime Santos said.
“Wala naman pong problema sa pagba-vlog, pero sana pag-aralan natin ‘yung content, suriin natin. Hindi pwede ‘yung mga ganito na it concerns the security of the community and the vlogger itself. We will filing a case against the vloggers.
“Ang Las Pinas police po ay nananawagan sa mga vlogger na please don’t encourage this type of vlog that might influence others, particularly ‘yung mga kabataan,”
