Because of her Facebook posts, a  woman who was on the “wanted” list was located and instantly arrested.

33-year-old Leslie Jurilla was enjoying a grand island “getaway” (literally getaway from crime) at a Boracay beach when she was spotted on the social media site.

Jurilla was “wanted” since January 2017 for a qualified theft case. She allegedly stole more than P6.5M from a travel agency where she worked for 10 years.

She is now in the custody of the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Southern Police District (SPD).

Jurilla’s modus was non-remittance of refunded tickets and switching of transactions.

It turns out that it was not the first time she was caught stealing from the company, but it’s the fifth.

Jurilla also used aliases so she could travel freely. What a smart move, but posting your location on Facebook seem to be the opposite.

Thoughts to ponder from this story [for humor’s sake]:

  • Don’t post anything on social media if you are wanted and detectives are on the hunt for you.
  • B.E.A.C.H. does not stand for “Best Escape Anyone Can Have”.
  • If you stole from me once, you can steal from me twice; why not five times or more?
