Three members of the police’s drug enforcement unit in Antipolo City in Rizal province were arrested on Monday for allegedly asking money from a suspected illegal drug pusher who they nabbed earlier.

A report from the Calabarzon police, identified the suspects as Police Officers 2 Randolph Opeñano and Erwin Fernandez, and PO1 Alejo de Guzman Jr.


Supt. Raynold Rosero, Antipolo police chief, said the police officers were arrested in an entrapment operation in Barangay San Jose on Monday night.

He said this stemmed from the complaint of the family of Joseph delos Santos who was arrested on July 20.


Rosero said the police officers would face extortion charges for accepting P50,000 from Delos Santos’ family. —Maricar Cinco
