Guam - Following a grave robbery at the Mount Carmel Cemetery, Agat Mayor Carol Tayama is hoping to work with the Archdiocese of Hagatna To beef up security at the site.

Tayama tells KUAM she's since spoken to Archbishop Anthony Apuron and offered assistance with watching over the burial grounds that are left unsecured after hours.

As we reported last week, the casket of the late Joe Shahn "Chiko" Santos Was pulled from the crypts, opened, and tampered with. Although investigators won't disclose if anything was stolen, family say the body was buried with large amounts of jewelry, including a Rolex watch.

Santos was a lifetime resident of the village and passed last June. His casket was reburied to a ground plot Friday afternoon.
