Guam - Police have wrapped up a nearly two-month long investigation into more than $15,000 that was stolen during an armored money pickup. According to court documents, in September employees from G4S Armored Security picked-up seven bags containing money from the Payless Store at the Micronesia Mall. Store officials however learned that only six bags were deposited at the bank. 

The seventh bag contained more than $15,000 in cash. Police reviewed surveillance footage and reviewed deposit slips. They located 31-year-old Joseph Diego Duenas and 31-year-old Robert Joseph Hernandez.  During the interview the two alleged their co-worker, Joe Anthony Mantanona, kept the bag of money and split the cash with them. 

KUAM News has learned Mantanona was picked up today and is being processed at the Department of Corrections. Duenas and Hernandez were charged with theft of property as a second degree felony.

They were both released on $5,000 bail with another hearing set for November 29.
