Guam - It's almost nightly we've been bringing you stories about robberies and burglaries. It was early Saturday morning that Piti Mayor's Office maintenance worker Edward Cabrera was passing by and noticed something was not right.

He recalled, "Sometime Saturday morning I notice one our lights was off so I came in inspected the place and noticed that the window and door was ajar so I immediately called the police to come and investigate."

Cabrera says the culprits attempted to enter through two different windows adjacent to the church. "They turned off the light on the back window they unscrewed the bulb and entered through restroom window they pried it open and got in from there then opened the back door and got in through there," he added. Cabrera says he found a hammer, a knife and keys from one of the offices in the kitchen sink. According to him he believes these items were utilized during the crime to gain entry to the offices.

"They stole quite a few of our stuff they stole our battery, our spool cutting spool, and a digital camera but that's about all they got from our office," he said.

Cabrera added that gas cards for their official vehicles were also taken. He believes that the thieves were scared off by his arrival at the mayor's office...  Not allowing them to make off with more.

This is not the first time that the Piti Mayors Office has been burglarized. Last year the facility was broken into three times making off with various items to include bushcutters. Cabrera says Piti Mayor Vicente Gumataotao has plans to form a neighborhood watch program to get Piti residents involved in helping deter crime in their community.

Meantime it was just last week the Yona Mayor's Office was burglarized two bush cutters were stolen from a storage shed.

If you have any information regarding the break-ins contact GPD Crimestoppers at 477-HELP. If you would like more information about the Piti Neighborhood Watch Program and how to participate contact the Piti Mayor's Office at 472-1232.
