Posted: Updated:

Guam - It turns out there was some truth to claims that individuals were going around pretending to be with the Calvo-Tenorio team selling campaign tickets.  Guam Police Department spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says no one ever came forward claiming that the individuals forced their way into homes and robbed anyone. 

However, GPD was able to confirm that a vehicle had been broken into and several Calvo-Tenorio campaign tickets were stolen from the car. The Criminal Justice Strike Force was able to locate the individual whose picture was posted on social media a few weeks ago. 

18-year-old Benjamin Weger Ferrer was charged with three counts of burglary, three counts of theft of property, conspiracy, and fraudulent use of a credit card. 21-year-old Eddie Lee Charfauros was also arrested charged with conspiracy to commit burglary, fraudulent use of a credit card and criminal mischief.
