QCPD has successful sting operation vs PBA Game 6 scalpers


Alleged scalpers were arrested by Quezon City Police District (QCPD) operatives a day before Game Six of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals.

Three individuals were nabbed in an entrapment operation at the Gateway Mall in Cubao after the league reported to authorities the online reselling of overpriced tickets for the match between Ginebra and Bay Area at the Araneta Coliseum.

“Nakahuli sila kahapon, may nahuling tatlo,” Commissioner Willie Marcial told reporters ahead of the Kings-Dragons tip-off Wednesday.

Fifty tickets were recovered from the caught men, who are facing raps for violating City Ordinance SP-2744 or the Anti-Scalping Ordinance of Quezon City.

The league has been aware of scalping reports and immediately sought the help of the police Tuesday, leading to the arrest of the three on the same day.

Marcial thanked QCPD head PBGEN Nicolas Torre III and QC Anti-Cybercrime Team leader PLT Michael Bernardo for the swift response.

The league chieftain hopes that the recent arrest would serve as a warning to the scalpers and to the public as well.

“Doon sa mga nagbebenta ng scalping sa online, ‘wag niyo ng gawin,” he said.
