Police intelligence coordinator arrested for ties to criminals

A police intelligence coordinator from Eilat was arrested by the Police Investigations Department on Monday after being suspected of communicating with criminals in the city. An additional three civilians were arrested in connection with the investigation. Colleagues of the officer told Israel Radio it was perfectly logical for the coordinator to be in touch with criminals, as such activity was part of the police officer's job description. The suspect was interrogated by the PID in Jerusalem. Police will seek to extend the suspect's custody at the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court.
