Guam - Known as "Fast Freddie", Fred Samuel Quinata is behind bars accused in a string of robberies, but according to news files it wouldn't be the first time he's been locked up, leaving many to question why he's even out roaming the streets.

After searching for several days the Criminal Justice Strike Force found their man. Quinata was booked and confined early Saturday morning. He's been connected to a string of gameroom armed robberies including this holdup of a mom-and-pop store in Agat where he was caught on surveillance video.  According to police spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia, Quinata told investigators that he was robbing for money to buy his son eye glasses, but instead used the money to support his drug habit.

According to news files Quinata has been in an out of jail over the last several years. In May 2011 police arrested Quinata on eight counts of burglary, possession of a firearm without an id, forgery, possession of a Scheduled II Controlled Substance, theft of a motor vehicle and fraudulent use of a credit card. He spent ten months in jail and was released.

Most recently, it was just in January Quinata was arrested along with another individual accused of robbing the Lucky Land Gameroom in Dededo and E-World Gameroom in Mangilao. According to court documents combined they got away with $11,000 in cash. Quinata spent eleven days in jail and was released.

Because of the government holiday, KUAM News was unable to retrieve the court file for the disposition of Quinata's cases.
