Virac policemen are investigation a report that two men who posed as police officers tried to extort money from a motorist in the early morning of Aug. 14, 2019 in front of the provincial capitol.

Krisman Ala, 28, a water station employee and resident of San Isidro Village, told the police that he was driving his motorcycle at 1:30 A.M. of said date when he was allegedly flagged down by two unidentified men dressed in “seemingly” PNP uniforms with no name plates and armed with undetermined caliber of handguns.

One of the fake officers requested him to present his driver’s license and vehicle registration documents but he was unable to do so. The ‘officer’ held Ala’s motorcycle and asked him for P1,500 in exchange for the release of his motorcycle.

It is claimed the two men took his key when he said he will leave to ask for money from his mother. When he came back, the two men and his motorcycle were gone.

Ala said he recovered the motorcycle near the Kusina Resort and Hotel in San Vicente where it was apparently abandoned by the suspects.

According to a source, another motorist whose motorcycle had no plate had been stopped by the two fake policemen before Ala but was allowed to leave after coughing up an undetermined amount of cash.

The Virac police station confirmed that no one from among its personnel had been posted in front of the capitol compound at that time.
