Gov't Corruption Task Force serves warrants

by Nick Delgado

Guam - The Guam Police Department's Government Corruption Task Force served a pair of search warrants today relative to possible missing funds from the Department of Correction's Inmate Pilot Program. Police along with DepCor internal affairs agents went to the Hagatna Bank of Guam and DepCor's Visitation Center in Mangilao looking for records of sales receipts for products belonging to inmates.

Task Force Agent John Mantanona couldn't release too many details, saying only, "This has been going on for at least two weeks or three weeks ago as an ongoing investigation."

Mantanona said the investigation was expected to conclude this week; however he now says it may take longer.
