Three men were jailed after picking up sunflowers planted by the local Iloilo City government.
The suspects, alias “Rene,” “Markus,” and “Makoy were arrested by the Iloilo City local government unit (LGU) on Saturday.
Rene and Markus admitted that they would give the sunflowers to their “special someone.” Markus even said he would plant plants in exchange for his release.
Makoy, meanwhile, denied that he picked up the sunflower. He said the flower fell, and he just picked it up from the ground.
The three men are facing malicious mischief charges.
The area was once a vacant lot and a dump before the LGU planted sunflowers.
