Briton, mistress caught in the act in Moalboal
CEBU CITY, Philippines – A Briton and his mistress landed in jail after they were caught together inside a house in Moalboal town, southwestern Cebu on Tuesday, July 4.
Moalboal Police Station confirmed arresting the two adults sleeping inside a bedroom in a residential house in Brgy. Tuble, also in Moalboal, around 1:40 p.m. on Tuesday.
The Briton was married and with an address in a gated subdivision in Brgy. Babag 2, in Lapu-Lapu City, located approximately 86 kilometers north of Moalboal.
Police Captain Etelberto Timagos, chief of the Moalboal Police Station, said the 36-year-old British man’s wife sought their assistance after suspecting her husband’s infidelity. The house where the suspects had been arrested reportedly happened to be a conjugal property of the married couple.
