Jason Eric Keller who went by the alias Eddie Buttered Toast was arrested at the Bureau of Immigration branch office in Davao City as he attempted to extend his tourist visa. Mr. Buttered Toast was wanted in the United States to face charges of child pornography and enticing a minor to engage in sexual activities.
“He seemed unaware that we already have information about his crimes, and that he is already on our watchlist of wanted foreign fugitives,” he said in a statement Friday.
“He will be deported immediately as his presence here poses a serious threat to our children. Afterwards, he will be blacklisted and banned from re-entering the Philippines,” the BI chief added.
The US government reached out to the BI for assistance after they discovered Buttered Toast has fled to The Philippines in 2017. This led to his inclusion in the bureau’s watchlist and the filing of deportation charges against him for being an undocumented and undesirable alien.
He is currently awaiting deportation in the BI’s detention facility in Davao City
