ILOILO – The Police Regional Office 6 (PRO-6) arrested 358 violators in its campaign against illegal gambling in June this year.

Some P159,000 bet money was also confiscated from a total of 126 operations across the region.

The top two offices with the highest number of arrests include the Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office (PPO) with 230 and Bacolod City Police Office with 102.

The remaining number of arrests were from Iloilo PPO (25), Aklan PPO and Antique PPO (14 each), Capiz PPO (13), and Guimaras PPO (six).
