BATANGAS CITY - A mother tried to bribe cops with P20,000 in exchange for the release of her son who was arrested in a buy-bust operation Tuesday.

The parent, identified as Imelda Rebancos, offered the money to PO2 Eric Joseph Delos Reyes while inquest proceedings were ongoing for her son Samuel, officials said.

The younger Rebancos also attempted to bribe cops with P50,000 when he was first nabbed, officials added.

Delos Reyes turned down both offers, and arrested the mother and son instead.

"Ni minsan, hindi ko naisip na tumanggap ng suhol," Delos Reyes said.

Imelda is expected to face charges for attempted bribery.
