The officer is suspected of selling information relating to investigations involving organized crime targets in the Tel Aviv area, in particular one of the largest crime families in Israel.

Tel Aviv police said that following an undercover investigation, they managed to find a civilian who helped broker the alleged transfer of information. That person, who himself is linked to the same major crime family, was arrested on Thursday.
