Continuing Cleansing Of Newly Appointed Ncrpo Chief Nabbed 2 Pasay Cops For Extortion

Two Pasay City police officers were nabbed in an entrapment operation for collecting 100 pesos from bus and van drivers along Malibay, Pasay City last 23rd of October, 2019.
The operations stemmed from reliable information developed by the PNP INTELLIGENCE GROUP (PNP IG) that the arrested suspects were collecting 100 pesos grease money from all buses and vans in terminals within Malibay area on board patrol cars.
According to the complainant, the PCP Commander of PCP 7 Pasay CPS, PCAPT MARK F OYAD, summoned him on September 28, 2019 in his office to inform him that the daily collection will be raised to 1000 pesos for every trip of bus and van.
The complainant appealed to the new demand considering that some personnel from the aforementioned PCP particularly the arrested suspects were also individually demanding 100 pesos from them daily.
The PCP commander was displeased and threatened the complainant that he will be arrested for violation of Sec 5 and 11 of RA 9165 if he will not heed to this new demand.
Hence, he was impelled to report the incident to proper authorities prompting the conduct of monitoring and information gathering by INTEGRITY MONITORING AND ENFORCEMENT GROUP (PNP IMGE) and PNP IG to verify the veracity of the report.
After thorough verification and information gathering, joint elements of the PNP IG, IMEG and RID of NCRPO conducted an entrapment operation inside Grand Transport Terminal located along EDSA, Malibay, Pasay City.
The operation yielded positive result and after receiving the 100 peso marked money, Police Corporal Reynald Pallangeo Macwes and Police Corporal Jimuel Ilagan Bernal, both assigned at Police Community Precinct 7, Pasay City Police Station were arrested.
Recovered from them were the marked money in the amount of 100 pesos, 1 Glock and 1 Beretta issued pistols.
Arrested suspects were taken under custody of IMEG for documentation and disposition prior to the filing of appropriate criminal and administrative charges.
The operation is part of the continuing PNP Intensified Cleanliness Campaign which aims to cleanse the organization from scalawags and misfits thereby enhancing the service it provides the community and the people they swore to serve and protect.
