Caught redhanded while playing “pusoy” during office hours, six workers of the provincial government face the prospect of jail time but also the possibility of losing their jobs.

Last Feb. 28, 2019, at 2:30 P.M., joint elements of the Virac police, the Catanduanes police intelligence branch and the 1st Police Mobile Force Company arrested Roman Valera, 44, a permanent employee of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAg) from Gogon Centro. With him playing cards with bets inside the nipa hut beside the Legislative Building were job order employees Eugenio Maroon Jr., 59, of Yocti, San Andres; Ronald Ong, 49, of Rawis, Virac; Raul Clemente, 44, of Pajo Baguio, Virac; Zaldy Olido, 53, of Divino Rostro, San Andres, and Nestor Evan Marquez, 29, of Sta. Elena, Virac.

Seized from them were a set of playing cards and P1,565 in bets.

A complaint for violation of Presidential Decree 1602 is being prepared for filing against the government workers.

In another development, a similar complaint has been filed against eight persons who were reportedly involved in an illegal cockfighting in barangay Obo last Feb. 24.

Lawmen led by Senior Inspector Robert Kevin Caparroso apprehended abaca stripper Jose Molina, 62, a resident of Dayawa, but failed to arrest his companions, Allan Amante, Josue Siapno, Welito Moraleda, Rudy Arcega, all of Dayawa, and Zaldy Tesorero, Antonio Teves and Rence Tindugan, all of Obo.

Seized as evidence were two blades (tari), two red roosters, and a roll of electrical tape.
