Citizens of Puerto Plata are furious about Police “official” robbery on the roads

PUERTO PLATA.- Dozens of citizens of all ages continue to complain about various misconduct by groups of Police agents in this jurisdiction. The complaints mainly come from hotel workers and university students who travel on motorcycles, who after being stopped on their way by the uniformed officials have to hand them money or else they are holding the motorcycles.

The young Fernando Merette said that it is a public robbery committed by several police agents in Puerto Plata with the famous ‘macuteo’, because without any good reason they stop the citizens and if the latter refuse to pay them money they confiscate the motorcycles.

“You live in a state of distress with the “macuteo” – a group of policemen who lurk when we leave work, and if we do not give them money, they take our engines and when we go with our papers to pick up the vehicles, they make it difficult to return them,” said the young man with the mark of displeasure on his face.

Other citizens consulted in this regard, indicated that in the so-called operations, checkpoints and raids implemented by the National Police in different parts of the city, dozens of motorcycles are retained and for their owners to recover they have to deliver money despite presenting their legal document.
