Guam - Police Chief Fred Bordallo wants to know why parolees were used to transport police evidence from Tiyan to the crime lab. He's ordered an investigation into officers assigned to the Evidence Control Section.
A complaint was filed after a parolee attempted to steal a gun from evidence during the move. Forensics Science Division Sergeant James Buccat says a large scale internal review is being done to evaluate using outside help when moving police property. "I think we have a good property control officer that does good work, I've worked with him and as far as I see and as far as policy is concern everything is being followed, everything is being adhered to, we are doing a great job with what we have limited," he said.
The parolee in question was removed from the community service worker program.
In the meantime, Chief Bordallo confirms investigators are looking into whether parolees have been used in the past to transport evidence.
