Chief Insp. Leo Sua, head of Police Station 1; Chief Insp. Samuel Cadungon, head of Police Station 2 and Sr. Insp. Hoover Antonio, head of Police Station 6 were relieved from their posts by PNP Chief Nicanor Bartolome, PNP spokesman Chief Supt. Generoso Cerbo Jr. said. 

The three were sacked after the police implemented a standing one-strike policy against illegal gambling. 

Cerbo said the three will undergo pre-charge evaluation for possible administrative sanctions.
