by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Theft and family violence arrests made up the largest percentage of the 42 arrests the Guam Police Department made in the last week.  Police officers assigned to patrol and other divisions provided more than 6,600 manhours roving the island's main thoroughfares and village streets. 

Police Chief Fred Bordallo says the department has been compiling the crime stats over the last five years, telling KUAM News, "The robberies go up and down also.  49 in 2008, 78 in 2009, 53 in 2010, 67 in 1011, 96 in 2012 double digit robberies so the average is about 5 robberies a month or about 60 a year."

Police note that the majority of crimes in homes are reported between 6 in the morning and 6 in the evening while local businesses are often targeted in the evenings. There were 16 theft related arrests, 12 family violence- and child abuse-related arrests and ten for robberies. Six arrests were made in connection with reported violent crimes and four each for criminal sexual conduct- and drug-related crimes.

Criminal Investigation Division agents also located 15 individuals who were considered persons of interest relative to ongoing investigations.
