3 nabbed on ‘tong-its’

Three individuals were arrested during an illegal-gambling operation in Purok 12, Barangay Communal, Buhangin on Thursday, Feb. 28.

Personnel from the Buhangin precinct conducted the operation around 3:30 p.m., resulting in the arrest of Marcelita  Diampa Bakiao, 36, and Emiliano Aguiwat Pansaon, 27, both residents of the above address; and Epifanio Coronia Naboa, 49, a resident of Sta. Rosa Angliongto compound in Sasa.

They were reportedly playing the card game “tong-its” when caught in the act. Police seized P350 in bet money that will be used as evidence against them.

They are facing a case for violation of Presidential Decree 1602 and are now under the custody of the said Buhangin precinct.
