Guam - Accused armed robber Anthony Campos gave police four different names of people he alleged were responsible for the robberies at the Route 8 Mini-Mart and the Sinajana Payless Supermarket. Police Officer Carlo Reyes recalled an interview with Campos during the trial today reading off the police report. 

Campos initially told police that his friend, John McCord, came to his home and confessed to being responsible for both robberies. Campos told police that he never left the house because his wife wouldn't let him.  He also claimed that a male customer who was present at the Route 8 Mini-Mart robbery was an accomplice to McCord. The defendant also told police that McCord and two others by the name of Francis and Ricky Herradura were responsible for the Payless robbery. 

Later in the interview, Campos told police he would tell the truth about his involvement in the robbery if officers would release his girlfriend.  He then told them his uncle was responsible for the robberies. The defense claims police failed to do their jobs by following up on the information Campos provided to them. 

The trial resumes on Wednesday.
