In an entrapment operation along Gen. Santos Avenue in Barangay Upper Bicutan, the culprit was nabbed after collecting PHP50,000 marked money from a poseur applicant. Aleman allegedly offered assistance to PNP Recruitment Applicants in exchange for money through her Facebook account, according to the police investigation.

Aleman has demanded PHP50,000 for every applicant as cash to ensure that the neuropsychiatric exam is passed. The suspect said that she was able to assist a large number of applicants in joining the PNP and that she would continue to assist them until they took the oath.

Her “pamato,” or person backing her, is allegedly a doctor with the rank of a police colonel, according to the suspect. PNP chief Gen. Guillermo Eleazar stated that a new mechanism would be implemented to avoid repeating the same modus.

Aleman was taken into custody by the Integrity Monitoring and Enforcement Group and will face appropriate criminal charges, including a violation of Republic Act 11032 (Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018) Section 21H (Fixing and/or collusion with fixers) in relation to RA 10175 Section 6 (Cyber-squatting) (Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012).
