MANILA, Philippines – A 26-year-old freelance female model suspected of carjacking was arrested by police in Quezon City on Thursday following an entrapment operation after receiving reports that one of the stolen cars was found in the hotel where she was staying.

The suspect was identified in an ABS-CBN News reports as Mariecar Rosel who was nabbed along with her cohort and boyfriend Reginald Van Malate. The two were nabbed as they were about to board the Toyota Fortuner parked in the basement of a hotel in Barangay Philam.

The Toyota SUV owner, Monaliza Laurente, accused Rosel, who also goes by the name Mariecar Go Chua, of stealing the vehicle.

Rosel reportedly befriended Laurente on Facebook after introducing herself as a former highschool classmate of the victim’s daughter.

The suspect then invited Laurente to her wedding and set up a meeting so she can bring the invitation. She even called Laurente ‘Tita’ in their exchange of messages.

While inside the car, Rosel tricked the victim into leaving the car by telling her one of tires was deflated before running off with the vehicle. (Click here to read more)
