POLICE arrested two men for trying to bribe officers after they were caught for traffic offences.
Sergeant Mohammad Sufyan caught the first man, 57, using his mobile phone while driving in Geylang last Saturday.
He was also using a vehicle without the owner's consent and a valid driving licence.
He offered Sgt Sufyan money to let him off, repeating the offer even after he was told that it was an offence.
The second man, 45, was found semi-conscious and reeking of alcohol in his lorry in Pasir Ris Drive 1 yesterday.
Station Inspector (SI) David Tan and his teammate found a plastic bag containing a white powdery substance, believed to be a controlled drug. The man tried to bribe SI Tan not to arrest him for drink driving and using controlled drugs.
Both cases have been referred to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau.
