Police probing ‘hold-up’

The campaign against illegal gambling, especially in northern Negros, has netted 424 violators in about seven months, with about P4 million in bail posted by its financiers.

Senior Supt. Milko Lirazan, provincial police director, said yesterday that several financiers of illegal gambling have temporarily stopped their operations, as they are having a hard time coming up with the funds to bail out their arrested personnel.

The average bail set by the court for those nabbed while engaged in illegal gambling is P10,000, with a bigger amount for repeat offenders, he added.

COA okays travel funds
of crime lab experts

The Commission on Audit yesterday approved the release of P30,000 to cover travel expenses of experts of the Philippine National Police Crime Laboratory in Region 7 to deliver crime scene evidence to their main headquarters in Metro Manila for forensic examination.

This was requested by Supt. James Goforth, Dumaguete Police chief, to expedite the investigation into the rape-slay of an eight-year old grade III pupil in Barangay Bajumpandan in Dumaguete.

Goforth had earlier admitted that, with the number of cases and requests pending at the regional crime laboratory office, it would take a while for evidence from this case to be brought to Camp Crame as the PCL operates on a first come-first serve basis.

gambling, loose gun


An 18-year-old teenager was arrested by the Bayawan City Police allegedly for possession of an unlicensed firearm yesterday.

Police identified the suspect as Jeno Cabanog, 18, of Sitio Cansinacao in Barangay Cansumalig, Bayawan City, Negros Oriental, who was charged for violation of Republic Act 8294, or the illegal possession of firearms and ammunition, after the inquest proceedings at the Provincial Prosecutor’s Office in Dumaguete City yesterday.

Cabanog was nabbed with a .38 snub-nosed caliber revolver with five live ammunition, and a black and white Honda Wave motorcycle that was reported stolen Sunday in Sitio Mohon, Brgy. Maluay, Zamboanguita town, and owned by Rosel Tubojon.
