Guam - An internal investigation is underway at the Department of Revenue & Taxation surrounding allegations that a DMV employee was signing off on vehicle transfers without proper documentation. KUAM News has learned at least two banks, the Navy Federal Credit Union and Coast 360, reported vehicles stolen after the alleged illegal transfers were made.

Authorities are still investigating what is believed to be a major government corruption case. Investigators confirm the DMV employee who is not being identified at this time remains employed with the agency pending the outcome of the investigation and may face possible criminal charges of forgery.

DRT director John Camacho says the department's legal counsel has advised him not to speak on the issue, saying, "It's an ongoing matter that's really a personnel matter and at this point in time we cannot talk about any details about this particular matter...any investigation goes through step by step (process) and a person is always given remedies as to their rights and it all depends how this goes forward."

Authorities believe more of these cases may be uncovered at Rev & Tax, and that the case may be drug-related.
