Warrant issued after Pinoy caught with gun at Disneyland no shows in court

FULLERTON, Calif. – The Filipino man accused of trying to bring a loaded gun into Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. last month was due in an Orange County court room Thursday morning.

Percival Agoncillo faces three firearm related felony charges.

However, the 44-year-old remained in custody hundreds of miles away in San Mateo County for probation violation and a warrant has been issued.

Fortunately, Disney security was observing him, noticed him called police, and Anaheim police were able to take him into custody without any sort of incident.

The judge had to issue a warrant to make sure he will eventually come down to Orange County once his case is taken care of in San Mateo.

Agoncillo was arrested last month outside of the Disneyland entrance. Officers allegedly found him with a loaded gun and some ammunition after he had passed a security checkpoint.

His motive remains unclear but some reports say he told detectives he was seeing ghosts and hearing voices.

“Obviously if we receive more information about why it was taking place then that’s something we take into consideration, as far as whether any additional charges are warranted,” Deputy District Attorney Jess Rodriguez said. “But we’re not at that place right now.”

Agoncillo made the $20,000 bail after his July 9 arrest, but he was then arrested in South San Francisco for violating his probation stemming from a previous conviction for possessing an illegal drug and a loaded gun in San Mateo County.

With his probation violation matter still pending in Northern California no arraignment date for the Disneyland case has been set and it is unsure if Agoncillo will return to Orange County in custody or on his own.
