Guam - Agents with the Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Section are closing in on those responsible for a pair of armed robberies that were reported in the last few weeks. Derek James Santos was arrested on Friday on two counts of second degree robbery. 

According to the magistrate's complaint, Santos admitted that he drove an unnamed male individual to the Ebenezer Store on June 12. Santos told police he knew that the man robbed the cashier at gunpoint of cigarettes, cash and phone cards. He also admitted to police that he drove the same person to the Mermaid Tavern where the individual robbed a female employee at gunpoint stealing her purse. 

KUAM News has confirmed that Santos previously worked as a cook for the Mermaid Tavern, but stopped working in June 2005.

He is being held behind bars on $100,000 cash bail and is scheduled to appear in the Superior Court of Guam on July 5. As for the individual Santos allegedly assisted in the two armed robberies, GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia confirms an investigation is ongoing into the case but no other details can be released at this time.
