Panic struck at an illegal cockfighting operation in Cariño Compound, Camino Nuevo last Saturday during a raid conducted by police in the area.

Bettors scampered in different directions upon seeing the lawmen.

Nevertheless, police were able to arrest four persons and confiscated five dead fighting cocks, fourteen live cocks, P4,650 in cash and several gambling paraphernalia.

The operation was launched by personnel from the Central Police Station led by Supt Ariel Huesca after receiving information on illegal cockfighting activities in the area.

The raid resulted to the arrest of Fructuoso Ablay Dingal, 76; Joseph Sebastian Perez, 33; Aizan Francisco Gonzales, 21; and Jaime Trumata Dingal, 40.

All are residents of Camino Nuevo.

The four were detained while evidence gathered were turned over to investigators. (Dan Toribio)
