Guam - An Army sergeant first class has been indicted on charges of theft of government property, conspiracy to defraud the United States, making a fraudulent claim, and false statement to a federal government agency.  Randolph Angoco is accused of drafting up false one-year real estate lease agreements with three members of the Guam Air National Guard so that they could obtain housing allowance. 

Court documents state that Edward Biacan, John J. Taitano and Dora Sarmiento made false claims to the Guam Air National Guard that they were paying monthly rental payments to Angoco.  It's alleged that Angoco was paid in excess of $13,000 as his share of the fraudulently obtained funds.  Angoco allegedly used his Anigua property as the location for the rental agreements even though none of the military personnel actually stayed there.

Angoco is scheduled to appear in court to answer to the charges on August 28.
