Surveillance video records Dededo school vandals in the act

Guam - The Guam Police Department has multiple active investigations into a string of burglaries targeting the island's school children. One middle school has released surveillance video they hope someone - anyone - will come forward to help put these criminals behind bars.

At Okkodo High School this morning the Department of Education's safety officer Bruce Williams is hard at work meeting with staff mapping out the best areas to install security systems at the Dededo campus. This while a few blocks away a pair of schools were targeted by vandals like at Maria Ulloa Elementary.

And at Benavente Middle School - where security cameras are in place. Surveillance video was released in hopes to catch three individuals who broke in to the Dededo campus at around 1:30 in the morning and stayed there for about 2-hours. The suspects trashed the school's gymnasium, and ransacked the main office, cafeteria and a storage room.  The suspects also got away with a PA system and stole personal items.  One of the suspects looked right into the surveillance camera fully aware he was caught on camera. BMS principal Dexter Fullo is hoping someone will come forward with information. If you know anything about what happened at Benavente or any of our island's public schools please call Guam Crime Stoppers at 477-4357 or text 688-STOP.

Today's burglaries add to a string of others that have occurred in recent days at Merizo Martyrs Elementary, Talofofo Elementary and Untalan Middle School.

Meanwhile, assessments are anticipated to finalize this week for high risk areas as part of the Secure Our Schools Act. The measure provides over one million dollars in funding for security up to seven years for the island's public schools.
