Quezon cops nab minor for ‘illegal’ STL operation

LUCENA CITY – Acting on anonymous reports from residents, authorities caught over the weekend a 17-year-old boy while allegedly engaged in bet collection of the illegal Small Town Lottery (STL) or “bookies” operation in Tayabas City, police reported on Sunday.

Quezon police director Sr. Supt. Rhoderick Armamento said that the suspect was collared by anti-illegal gambling operatives while in possession of unremitted “lastillas” (bet collection form) and P1,350 cash, believed to be bet collection, late Saturday night in Barangay (village) Opias.

The suspect failed to produce a legitimate identification card issued by Pirouette Gaming Corp., the licensed STL operator in Quezon province, which indicated that he was engaged in illegal bookies operation.                        /kga
