Cruz wants Suba back, but not as leader

Guam - Lieutenant Governor Mike Cruz says he supports the idea of former police chief Paul Suba returning to the force, but only to return as a member of the rank-and-file and not as a leader.  Cruz, while sitting as acting governor last month, called for Suba to retire, saying his leadership was called into question when the police department executed a search warrant the KUAM Studios in Harmon.

He said, "The governor's thoughts about the possibility of him coming back as a police officer is supported, but certainly for me as lieutenant governor, who had a part and a responsibility of what happened up there, I don't think that I would agree that he should come back as a leader certainly with the department."

The lieutenant governor says Suba has dedicated three decades of his life to the force and should be allowed to return to previous position.
