Guam - Joseph Elibosang was back in court today. He stole brass panels from the War in the Pacific Overlook on Nimitz Hill in 2007. He served 21 months in jail for that crime.  Today he was back in court facing the possibility of spending more time back in jail after testing positive for methamphetamine and marijuana. 

Both parties have agreed to allow him to instead undergo drug rehabilitation at the Salvation Army's Lighthouse Recovery Center. The judge continued today's hearing until next month.

In the meantime, the National Park Service applied for a grant to replace the nameplates that Elibosang stole.
