In a report by ABS-CBN News, Angeline Mendoza, the house helper sent a message to Billy asking for P9,000 in exchange of his pet dog.
The victim reported the incident to the police and set an entrapment operation.
They were able to rescue the dog and got Angeline and a certain Edsmar Naba arrested.
"Ibinibenta n'ya (Mendoza) pala ang aso sa iba, kaso di maibenta," said Billy.
"Sobra ginagawa n'yo sa akin tapos kanina pababayaran n'yo pa sa akin 'yung aso."
Naba and Mendoza denied committing the crime but they are charged with robbery extortion.
"Sa mga kumukuha ng kasambahay, kilatisin 'yung kanilang kasambahay nang hindi na maulit itong nangyari sa biktima natin," said PO3 Julius Mabasa.
