MANILA, Philippines — Two policemen and two of their accomplices were arrested for alleged robbery-extortion, the antiscalawag unit of the Philippine National Police said on Tuesday.

Brig. Gen. Ronald Lee, director of the PNP-Integrity Monitoring and Enforcement Group, identified the suspects as Senior Master Sgt. Vic Godwin Lajom and Pat. Jay Mark Tuazon of the Malolos City Police Community Precinct (PCP) 5 and civilians Wendell Mendoza and Kenneth Villena.


Lee said the four were arrested on Monday inside the Malolos City PCP 5 following an entrapment operation.

“We have received several complaints regarding the involvement of the two policemen in a massive protection racket in their area where they demand money from tricycle drivers and traffic violators in exchange for the nullification of their traffic citation tickets,” Lee said.
