Adult Day Care burglarized

Guam - From our island's school children to our beloved elderly, no one is spared from the rash of burglaries being perpetrated in our community. Various homes, businesses and government agencies have all fallen victim to a rash of burglaries occurring throughout the island over the past several months, but the latest target has proven that there is no remorse by the thieves.

Just this morning Catholic Social Services' Adult Day Care, a home away from home for 42 of our island man'amko was burglarized. Program manager Maria Timoteo told KUAM News, "When we do the assessment with mestop we see that there is a big crack in the window here what happened is they used a big rock and breaking the window they put their hands all the way to the other side and unlocked the window."

Once inside, the suspect(s) stole electronics and other items belonging to CSC. "Right now we lost our 42" flat screen TV, karaoke system, wireless microphone, electric pump and humidifier those are the items that's missing," she said.

According to Timoteo, whoever the thieves are they spent a substantial amount of time in burglarizing the facility, saying they not only trashed offices but also took the time to pick the locks of 12 lockers. Even more disheartening is the fact that this isn't the first time c-s-s- has been burglarized.

Matter of fact the non-profit organization's administrative building was burglarized almost on a monthly basis until they installed a security system, as Timoteo said, "The man'amko really feel bad they were saying there is no respect for our elderly especially now a days this is the place that they can call second home now when somebody break in it means like really there's no safe place at all," she said.

If you have any information regarding the burglary please contact the Guam Crimestoppers at 477-HELP (4357).
