Guam - Two men who tried to take the law into their own hands wound up in jail this weekend.  On Sunday morning Dededo Precinct officers responded to a report of a woman who reported that her laptop and camera had been stolen and she believed the suspect was in a passing car.

Officers conducted a pullover of the vehicle and found three men inside, including one whose hands were tied around his waist. Guam Police Department Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says police believe the reporting woman's two sons went to the alleged suspect's home and beat him with a metal pipe while he was sleeping and then tied him up as they intended to take him to the Marbo Cave area. 

Anthony De Venencia, 23, and Allan De Venencia, 25, were arrested on numerous charges to include kidnapping, aggravated assault, burglary, possession of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, and felonious restraint.

The 24-year-old man who was beaten and tied up was treated at the Guam Memorial Hospital and later released.
