.Uris Vargas, the senior prosecutor in Panama Oeste, said the arrested sergeant extorted money from a merchant in exchange for giving him information about a case that was being investigated in coordination with the Prosecutor's Office and the Directorate of Judicial Investigations.

Aafter receiving the extortion report, the sergeant was monitored and captured on the Pan-American Highway at Nuevo Arraiján, where he had received the money from the merchant. The money was found in the police car.
