GPD sees alarming increase in burglaries; residents urged to stay alert

In the last three months, the Guam Police Department has recorded more than 250 burglaries. 105 burglaries were reported in September. 115 were reported last month and already in the first two weeks of November, GPD has already responded to more than 2 dozen burglary complaints. Guam Police Department Spokesperson Officer Allan Guzman says police believe the rise in burglaries can be attributed to the increasing drug problem. Police warn residents to be cautious and report any suspicious activities as the department expects to see an increase in criminal activities with the holiday season approaching.

Guzman added, "The common norm that I'm starting to see is basically a lot of people are using the storm shutters and locking up their house. You're actually making yourself more or less like a prisoner. But basically just go around and do a common check of your residence."
