Barangay chief, gf caught in hotel room

SAN JOSE CITY -- A 58-year-old barangay chairman in this city and his 32-year-old alleged paramour landed in jail after they were caught having an illicit affair while inside a hotel on Araw ng Kagitingan here on Tuesday.

Police Lt. Col. Heryl Bruno identified the arrested barangay official as Librado Dulay, of Zone 7, Bgy. Abar 1st and his alleged lover as Ma. Cecilia Tubiera, of Zone 10A, both married.

The duo were both nabbed inside a room of the Kalapao Hotel along the Maharlika Highway in Bgy. Caanawan at about noon Tuesday.

Bruno said the arrest was made based on the complaint of the woman’s husband who called up the police at 11:35 a.m. requesting for immediate assistance.

Bruno said the complainant was allegedly able to read his wife’s text messages prior to their sexual tryst at the hotel, which prompted him to set them up for the police entrapment.

A video footage of the police entrapment furnished to the media showed the woman already naked inside a room of the hotel with the barangay official hiding inside the bathroom.

Bruno said the arrested duo are already locked up in detention here and were already slapped with charges for adultery before the city prosecutor’s office here.
