The capture was done peacefully, with the suspect not showing resistance. The bureau took the suspect to its office for further probe.
The arrest followed after about 30 investors in her scheme complained last month that they did not receive their money that Gregoro promised to return.
The complainants got worried and demanded their money back after the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) moved against another scheme in the city, based on the report.
Gregorio failed to keep a promise to return her investors’ money by Feb. 20. She did not show up in the agreed venue.
The suspect had not been seen in the city since that day.
