A police investigator in the Israel Police’s Lahav 433 serious crime unit has been arrested on suspicion of passing along internal information to criminals.

According to Hebrew media reports, suspicions against the investigator were aroused due to his odd actions, including seeking out details on criminals in the country’s north.
