A home security camera caught the policemen, some in civilian clothes, and a minor entering the residence of Erobas, a person believed to be involved in drug trading, on the evening of September 7.
Erobas said the cops and the civilian informants ransacked the house and took P26,000 worth of valuables.
Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II earlier ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to conduct its own probe into the robbery incident involving the cops and two police assets.
The robbery incident and the killings of several teenagers had triggered the relief of 1,200 Caloocan policemen. (SunStar Philippines)
