Beware of this Man

cebu wanted

If you happen to see this man around Cebu City, then be aware. According to a certain Edwin San Nicolas in his Facebook post, this man was caught inside their property in Mabolo. Although, the suspect didn’t get anything, but he was still arrested for “trespassing”.

Edwin San Nicolas full post:

This guy/stranger was caught inside our property where our house is (still under construction) and went inside my neighbor’s property climbing the low fence in between. He was seen by my neighbor and went back to our area and was caught there. This happened last Saturday night at around 10. His alibi: he wanted to wash his feet! …at 10pm and there is a faucet near our entrance gate, go figure.

Anyway, he was detained at Mabolo Police station Saturday night until this morning for trespassing. He was caught with nothing from either my area or my neighbr’s. I was not there when this happened. This morning, I went to the police station to see this guy. I didnt believe a single excuse he made but decided not to press charges. The 2-night stay in that stinky cell with other guys for me was enough punishment for him. He had to be detained since Nobody can process his release on a weekend. I had him released with a stern warning not to set foot in our neighborhood.

Remember this face people just incase this guy will create trouble in your area. His name is Jundril Jemenez. I dont even think its his real name since he didnt have any identification docs with him. He said he is going back home to Kawit, Bantayan since he only came to Cebu to look for a job and found non…one of his alibis. I gave him some money so he can go home…hoping he will indeed go home. I still believe this guy was lucky enough…a hollowpoint load could have been discharged if things happend differently…God forbid, because i would not hesitate…

Franco

A Manila based friend of mine in Facebook posted photos of a band, then the name of the band written on the description hit me – Franco. My memory brought me back about a decade, I remember there used to be a “grunge sound” Cebu based band whose singer’s voice I admired. It was named Frank, and the singer’s name was still vivid in my mind – Franco.

My friend obviously liked this band based on his comments on Facebook. Then I searched about the band, it gets majority of good reviews, in Youtube, most of the comments are positive.

Listen to Franco’s “Next Train Out”.

To know more about the band, visit EverythingCebu, it has a short article about Franco.
