Police counter-intelligence task force operatives arrested a police officer hunted for robbery extortion in Pasig City early Saturday morning.
CITF operatives prepared an arrest warrant for Corporal Edgar Santos at about 1:30 a.m. at the Eastern Police District headquarters and was subsequently arrested around that time.
PNP-CITF commander Colonel Romeo Caramat quoted on the report saying Santos was with EPD roving patrol when arrested.
Santos was wanted by operatives for robbery-extortion, charges for extorting P100,000 from a victim who lives in Marikina last year, December 10, 2018.
Suspect is now being detained at the CITF headquarters for charges pressed against him and police custody..
