Guam - A 22-year-old is behind bars on $7,000 cash bail after he was arrested in connection with last week's burglary at Veteran's Cemetery in Piti.  Relatives of Jonathan Roy Santos reported him to police after they saw media reports of the break in and noticed Santos had been using brand new power tools around the house. 

According to the magistrate's complaint, Santos allegedly climbed through an open air conditioning duct to gain access to the cemetery's maintenance building. He allegedly stole an ATV mule, bushcutters, blowers, gas cans, a chain saw and other items valued at more than $20,000.

Santos was charged with theft of property and burglary and remains behind bars awaiting a preliminary hearing scheduled for July 15.
