2 airport cops arrested on extortion charges

A joint entrapment operation of the Counter Intelligence Task Force (CITF) and the Intelligence Group of the Philippine National Police resulted in the arrest of two police personnel allegedly involved in extorting from drivers picking up passengers at the NAIA Terminal 2.

The suspects were later identified as Airport Police personnel Police Officer 1 Pablo P. Atayde Jr. and Police Officer 1 Danilo Levite Jr.

They were arrested after they received marked money from the CITF operative who posed as a driver.

Atayde and Levite are in the custody of CITF personnel and were brought to Camp Crame for proper disposition and filing of the appropriate case in the court.

The operation was conducted after the PNP-CITF received complaints through text messages. —with Amita Legaspi/BAP/KG, GMA News
