Guam - Acting chief of the Guam Police Department Captain Fred Bordallo has asked his Internal Affairs Division to look into allegations that one of his officers left a gun behind at a local hotel. KUAM News has learned that the accused officer went to the Hotel Ypao in Tamuning last night where he checked-in, but when he checked-out, he forgot his gun.

The hotel's owner confirms that at 10pm last night they noticed that a customer forgot a gun inside one of the rooms, and that they called police to secure it. KUAM News has confirmed that an Officer Tan with the Tumon-Tamuning Precinct confiscated the weapon.

GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia confirms the report is under investigation. It's not clear whether the officer was on duty.
