Guam - Law enforcement oversight chair Senator Adolpho Palacios is taking all further allegations of firefighters taking items and money from the victims of the 1997 Korean Airlines crash directly to the chief of police. Palacios received an anonymous call during acting fire chief John Salas' confirmation hearing yesterday. He says the concern includes names of three Airport Police officers that are alleged to have information about the incident.

However, Airport Police Chief Bob Camacho says his officers are not aware adding that he will launch an investigation if he gets more information. Palacios says he still has some reservations about the fire chief appointee, as Salas was the head of internal affairs at the time of the alleged theft.

The senator said, "Part of the presentation of the nominee may not be accurate, actually the caller used a word that implies condemnation something to that effect I won't be specific, but definitely its clearly inaccurate."

He says he wants to know what happened to the evidence that is alleged to have been stolen. Palacios adds that he will be taking the advice from GPD regarding Salas' confirmation, as he says the force is currently investigating the allegations.
