Paul Franklin, 64, was caught at 3 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 20, in Barangay Union in Dauis town, where he lived with his Filipina girlfriend.

A mission order for his arrest was issued by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) based on the request of the United States government for violating his probation.

Franklin was previously convicted for possession and culture of marijuana and was subjected to surveillance since March 2021.
