Guam - A non-profit organization in Dededo that empowers, encourages and inspires young girls was burglarized. According to Island Girl Power program director Juanita Blaz at around 11pm Sunday their Cyber-Tech alarm system was triggered. It appeared the suspects gained entry through an air conditioning window unit.

The suspects made off with several pieces of music equipment, an XBox 360 video game console and a flatscreen computer monitor. "We are very hopeful things are going to turn around for this community, we are in meetings with GHURA and the mayor's office and we are working on a community revitalization project. The police officers have been really great, we've asked them to make extra rounds to the area to just to make sure it's secure," said Blaz.

In the past seven years this is the first time Island Girl Power has been broken into. Operations there will resume as normal on Saturday.
