The OIJ, which had been investigating complaints of corruption against the officer, between the hours of 1 and 4 a.m. witnessed him extorting $400 in cash from tourists by threatening them with arrest or ticketing. The officer was remanded into the hands of the OIJ in Santa Cruz, where he faced criminal charges.
