Another suspected illegal swertres collector was arrested in a police operation in Barangay Mercedes the other day.

Nabbed was Milbrin Villalobos y Molina, 31, married, of Boalan.

Villalobos was arrested by men of the Anti-Vice Section led by Sr. Insp. Joseph Lim around 6 p.m.

Confiscated from the suspect’s possession were assorted betting stubs, tally sheets, cell phone and a motorcycle.

Villalobos was brought to the central police station for investigation and was later taken to the City Prosecutor Office for inquest for violation of Republic Act 9287.

Meanwhile, Ricardo Ortiz, 79,  with some barangay tanod of Talisayan brought his son Rene Ortiz, 43, to the Ayala Police Station, who was drunk and unruly.

While at the police station, a policeman frisked Ortiz and found from his right pocket two sachets of shabu and two rolled aluminum foils.

The seized items were forwarded to the 9th PNP Crime Laboratory for examination while Ortiz was detained pending the filing of charges against him in court. – Dan Toribio Jr.
