Guam - The Guam Police Department's Robbery Task Force continues its efforts to not only combat the recent rash of robberies around the island, but to also solve the more than dozen robberies reported in the last two months alone. The Task Force has already made four arrests in connection with three armed robberies and more arrests are pending as they pursue leads into other cases.
Investigation Section Operations Chief Lieutenant Scott Wade urges the public to be vigilant in reporting any sort of suspicious activity and remember as many details as possible, as that one piece of information may give police what they need to break the case. He told KUAM News, "The public can always help us by being really diligent and watching out for their neighbors. Report things that you think are suspicious. People leaning in a car window in the middle of a parking lot, people at your neighbor's home especially when no one's home coming from the back of the house or garage area.
And if you are a victim of a crime or robbery get as much information as possible.. Vehicle descriptions, license plates, descriptions of the individuals involved and share that information with the Guam Police Department."
Residents with any information about any robberies or who want to report any suspicious activity should call Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357) or GPD at 472-8911.
