Priest Carrying Carved Figure Flagged at Checkpoint After It was Mistaken as Dead Body
A priest went viral on social media after sharing a hilarious event where he was flagged by cops after a carved figure car was mistaken as a dead body.
A priest described his story on Facebook after being suspected of murder by authorities. Father Jonel Peroy, a parish priest in Digos City, Davao del Sur, stated on Facebook that he was on his way home when he was stopped at a police checkpoint.
The covered sculpted statue of Santo Entierro in the backseat of his vehicle piqued the authorities’ interest. Fr Peroy was carrying an image of the Santo Entierro that he had purchased in Digos City in time for Holy Week.
While he knew he wasn’t doing anything criminal, he couldn’t stop sweating while speaking with the authorities who were concerned about what he was transferring. He has no choice but to unwrap the carved figure in order to persuade the authorities that he is not concealing something.
“Sinabi nila na gusto nilang makita yung loob ng kotse ko. Naghihinala kasi sila doon sa cargo ko sa sasakyan dahil akala nila tao na nakabalot sa plastik.” Peroy said.
Fr Peroy reportedly told the officers that he was a parish priest. After recognizing their error, the authorities swiftly apologized to the priest.
“Pasensya na talaga, father akala namin may sinalvage ka,” he wrote. “Hindi ko sinalvage si Kristo,” the priest quips in his post.
