Adkins says mobile pix of crash missing

Guam - James Adkins wants to know where the photographs that he took of a car crash last October went.  Adkins is suing the Attorney General of Guam, Police Chief Paul Suba, and Guam Police Department officers D.B. Anciano and Serafino Artui.  He argues that he was illegally arrested, detained and incarcerated after he took photos on his mobile phone of a car crash that happened near Paseo De Oro.

While Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan ordered GPD to return his mobile, which that was seized during his arrest.  But when he retrieved his phone, Adkins was able to retrieve all the photos he'd taken prior to the incident - with the exception of the photos from the crash.

After receiving technical assistance from a local phone company, Adkins also noted that his phone sustained water damage.  According to the latest filing with the U.S. District Court of Guam, Adkins believes his phone was tampered with and has asked the court to allow data recovery specialists in California to retrieve the photos from his device, or off a memory card.
