Guam - The Port Authority of Guam is beefing up security at the Agat Marina after several boats were broken into and influx of reports of vandalism. According to Port General Manager Pedro Leon Guerrero, the incidents occurred this past weekend in the early morning hours. Vandals went so far as even cutting lines securing vessels to the docks.

Agat Mayor Carol Tayama tells KUAM News more precautions need to be taken to ensure safety and security, adding, "The place most of the time is very dark, the Commercial Port needs to look at that and improve their lighting because if the place if well lit then it will be harder for vandalisms to occur."

According to Leon Guerrero, the Port has already begun taking steps to ensure safety at the Agat Marina. Without being specific, officers are being assigned to the marina to patrol the area. They are also working to add more lighting and repair the currents ones that are broken.

Anyone with information about the recent break-ins is asked to call Port Police at 477-2864 or Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
