• Local star surfer nabbed for drugs


    SAN JUAN, La Union: Felimon Dines, 40, locally known also as “Lemon Surfstar Dines,” a surfing instructor and owner of a bar in his residence in the Urbiztondo tourist enclave was arrested in a buy-bust recently. Chief Insp. Silverio Ordinado Jr., La Union police information officer, said Dines, who is under the police drug watchlist, was found with two sachets of shabu and P500 buy-bust money. Dines denied the accusation, saying he only went out to deal with a man who wants to buy a second-hand surfing board but policemen arrested him. He also denied that he is on the list of “Oplan Tokhang” but Ordinado told The Manila Times the surfer surrendered to authorities last year. Dines acted in a 2015 movie along with Solenn Heussaf and Rocco Nacino which most of its scenes were shot in this surfing town. He is now in police custody.
