Guam - Three Department of Corrections officers were served adverse action for the escape of inmate Xavier Tedtaotao. Tedtaotao escaped from the Mangilao prison's Halfway House using a DepCor official pickup truck. He led police on a high speed chase in Dededo before he was taken back into custody.
DepCor Spokesperson Lt. Antone Aguon says two officers got a letter of reprimand, while the officer on the clock at the time of the escape was suspended for 30 days. "I can't go to deep into it because it's a personnel issue, but the investigation turned out that there were certain policies that were not followed that did allow inmate to get access to the key which assisted him in his escape."
Tedtaotao remains at Post 6 - The Maximum Security Unit - as he did not cooperate during the investigation.
