Guam - Airport Police continue to investigate a theft of 18 paychecks from the Guam Census Office. Yolanda Elliott, census media specialist, says the checks were kept in a locked desk and when an employee came to pick up their check a manager noticed they were missing. Four of the checks have since been cashed.
The Census Office was able to put a hold on the 12 remaining checks. Elliott says she cannot release the total amount of the checks. She did say a lock on the desk where the checks were kept did not appear to be tampered with.
When asked if she might suspect that the job might be an inside one, Elliott said, "I can't speculate at this time its still under investigation and I don't want to say anything that is wrong so we would like to leave it up to the airport police to handle the investigation."
She says police are interviewing all employees who may have had access to the checks.
