LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu — Three men were arrested by the police for their alleged participation in illegal cockfighting or tigbakay in Barangay Buenavista in Carcar City, southern Cebu on Friday afternoon, December 8.

In a report, the Carcar City police identified the suspects as Arvin Marolano Aves, 52; Nicanor Abellaneda Benting, 59; and Ronald Empinado Dait, 33.

Aves is from Barangay Valencia while Benting is from Buenavista.  Dait, on the other hand, is from Barangay Rosario, also in Carcar City.

In the report, the police said that they conducted an anti-gambling operation in Barangay Buenavista after Police Captain Warlito Tonacao received a report on the presence of tigbakay in said place.
