Feds ask for order of forfeiture for seized money

Guam - The federal government has asked for a preliminary order of forfeiture for $137,687 that was seized and taken into evidence by the Guam Police Department relating to a search warrant at the Gajo & Sons Auto Body Shop.  Earlier this year the money was surrendered to authorities by Kenrick Gajo who agreed to cooperate with police about drug activity. 

Gajo also said he would provide information about a 1998 murder of a woman in Mangilao in exchange for being charged with a lesser offense.  The feds are looking to have that money forfeited and placed in their custody.

The police department meanwhile continues to investigate whether close to $10,000 was stolen or whether police miscounted the money as the original evidence custody receipt showed more money had been seized than what was actually turned over and deposited.
