Santo Domingo.- Antinarcotics (DNCD) Anti-laundering Unit agents on Sunday arrested former Police Lt. Colonel Joan Liriano at a luxury high-rise apartment in the National Distrito Evaristo Morales’ sector.
The authorities reportedly seized, from the former colonel, whose nicknamed “El arbitrario,” millions in euros and dollars, hidden in a closet and three luxury vehicles and a high-powered motorcycle.
Liriano, currently detained National Police headquarters, had been dishonorably discharged a few months ago, after having held key DNCD positions at Las Americas and Higuero airports.
He was known for threatening reporters who cover both airports to “manufacturing files” implicating them in drug trafficking cases.
The National Police said Liriano was the owner of the farm at Santa María, San Cristóbal, where alleged hired killers murdered one of their colleagues linked to international drug traffickers.
