Ex-MTPB member face extort raps

A FORMER member of the Manila Parking and Traffic Bureau (MTPB)  facing extortion charges in a court in Manila was arrested in Tondo, Manila the other day recently.

Jay-V Gantang was nabbed by members of the Manila Police District-District Special Operation Unit (MPD- DSOU) along Antonio Rivera Street in Tondo at around 4:30 p.m.

His arrest was pursuant to a warrant issued against him on January 14, 2020 by Manila Regional Trial Court Judge Edgardo Saplala of Branch 3 which also set a P100,000 bail for his provisional liberty.

Police said based on records, the case of Gantang stemmed from a complaint that he was mulcting truck drivers on Road 10 in Tondo, along with one Rodel Otiong, Jr. who was nabbed last year before him.

Gantang is also said to be the ‘Top 3 Most Wanted Person’ in the MPD-Police Station 7 list.
