Also detained was a retired police officer.
The arrests yesterday came less than 24 hours after mStar Online, the Malay news portal of the Star Media Group, exposed the officers’ demands for protection money of between RM50 and RM200 a month from the operators.
Besides the ASP and the retired officer, the others nabbed were two sergeants, a corporal and a lance-corporal.
They were believed to have accepted bribes in cash either directly or banked into a third person’s account.
Several unlicensed operators had reportedly paid RM12,000 over the past three months as monthly protection money to at least 20 people.
A Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission source told the news portal that the six suspects had been involved in these activities over the past two years.
“They were arrested at various locations following public tip-offs and MACC surveillance over the past three months.
“Initial investigations revealed that several of the suspects knew each other and might be working together,” said the source.
