Four Muntinlupa policemen were arrested on Friday, July 12 after an entrapment operation inside PNP Muntinlupa’s Headquarters. The said cops were accused of extorting at least Php 300,000 from a female drug suspect as an exchange for her liberty.
The arrested cops, identified as Po2 Farvy Dela Cruz; Po1 Jonjon Averion; Po3 Romero PAr; and SPo1 Psylo Joe Jimenez, are also members of the intelligence and drug enforcement units of Muntinlupa PNP.
Aside from extortion, the cops were also charged with robbery and assault.
Arrested policemen get the taste of their own medicine after they were caught in an operation of NCRPO Regional Special Operations Unit. NCRPO Chief PCSupt. Guillermo Eleazar personally puts the cops inside the jail, sharing detention with some of their arrested criminals in Muntinlupa.
However, the PNP is still further investigating if the arrested cops are involved in the illegal drug trade since pieces of drug paraphernalia were recovered in their office.
