MANILA - A man was arrested after introducing himself as a policeman in Quezon City on Satrurday.

According to information from the Quezon City Police District, the suspect, Rosendo Santos, was apprehended for using a vehicle without proper documents.

Santos, however, pretended to be a member of the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Further investigation showed that Santos finances a company that offers fake car insurance. He was earlier charged with seven cases of swindling in the Quezon City Regional Trial Court.

He is currently detained at the QCPD Anti-Carnapping Unit and will be charged with usurpation of authority. -- report from Robert Mano, DZMM
