MANILA - Police arrested 2 men posing as traffic enforcers on Kalayaan Ave. in Makati City Monday night.

Police Maj. Howell Joseph Greñas of the Highway Patrol Group (HPG) said they chanced upon the suspects who were providing security to a businessman.

The suspects wore uniforms from the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and used blinkers and sirens. They claimed they were previously employed by MMDA.

"Umamin naman sila na 1 year na silang wala sa serbisyo," Greñas said. "Titingnan pa namin kung graduate ba sila ng course na ibinibigay natin."

Complaints for usurpation of authority and illegal use of sirens and blinkers will be filed against the suspects.
