Citizen tip leads to break in burglaries

Posted: Updated:

Guam - A private citizen who reported suspicious activity and the hard work of police resulted in the arrest of 18-year-old Joe Manglona and the apprehension of three male minors. The single phone call resulted in authorities locating seven stolen vehicles and solving five burglaries. 

Police Chief Nominee Captain Fred Bordallo says the arrests stemmed from a burglary that occurred on Wednesday morning at his mother's home in Tamuning. Bordallo's mother's car was stolen but was located by a southern resident who noticed the vehicle in a neighborhood in Agat.

"This is successful work," Bordallo noted, "because an alert citizen who noticed suspicious activity reported it to police and the Agat Precinct and Tamuning Precinct and Criminal Investigations Division are all doing hard work in trying to put closure on these cases."  

Bordallo is hopeful the public can be just as vigilant in helping catch the individuals responsible for vandalizing the island's school campuses.
