Police arrest suspect in "lookout" car in Bank of Guam robbery

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - The Guam Police Department has made an arrest in connection with the Bank of Guam robbery in Yigo.  Antonio Roke Quitugua, 29 of Yigo, was arrested by Criminal Investigation Division agents on Saturday night.  

Quitugua was charged with second degree robbery, theft of property, conspiracy, guilt established by complicity, criminal facilitation, reckless conduct, and terrorizing.  Police have not released full details about the arrest.  GPD Spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia could only confirm that Quitugua is alleged to have acted as the lookout for the two men who robbed the Yigo branch of the Bank of Guam in February.

 The two masked men forced their way into the bank shortly after it opened, armed with handguns, and stole money from the bank teller counter and fled on foot.  The case remains under investigation and more arrests are anticipated.
