Saturday, June 30, 2012
POLICE have arrested six suspected coordinators of illegal numbers game jai alai in Sipalay City, Negros Occidental, on Thursday.
The arrested coordinators are reportedly linked to a certain Angee Yap, an illegal numbers game operator in northern Negros.
Negros Occidental governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. has ordered the police to wage an all-out campaign against illegal gambling.
On the other hand, Western Visayas police director Cipriano Querol ordered the police forces in the region to maintain a one-strike policy against illegal gambling.
Station chiefs face immediate relief from their post once suspects involved in illegal numbers games are arrested in their area of responsibility.
