The Clarendon Police say they expect to arrest some major players in the sale of illegal 'Cash Pot' soon as they continue their crack down on the practice.

The police say in the last week detectives attached to the Clarendon Police Proactive Unit have arrested and charged five persons with breaching the Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act.

A senior officer says the police are gathering information which will allow them to go after major players.

According to the police officer, the sale of illegal 'Cash Pot' generates millions of dollars each year.

He further says intelligence gathered by the police indicates that proceeds from the illicit activity are been used to fund and arm gangs in Clarendon.

The senior officer says the police will not stop until they have ended the illegal selling of 'Cash Pot' and put perpetrators behind bars.
