IMEG director Brig. Gen. Flynn Dongbo said the operation stemmed from the complaint that the policeman is demanding money in exchange for the release of a Certificate of Detention to one of the inmates.

An entrapment was then mapped out and resulted in the arrest of Angeles after receiving the two P500 bill marked money.

Dongbo said administrative charges were immediately slapped against Angeles who is currently detained at the IMEWG office at Camp Crame in Quezon City.

The official also called on the public to report the presence of the PNP personnel involved in any irregularities to the PNP IMEG Hotlines: SMART- 09989702286 or GLOBE- 09957952569.
