GPD details McCord's arrest

Posted: Updated:

Guam -The Guam Police Department has released more information into the arrest of 21-year-old John McCord. Thursday evening GPD announced he was dangerous and was wanted for questioning.

According to police spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia just before 11 o'clock Friday morning agents from the Criminal Investigations Division, Criminal Justice Strike Force,  and K9 Unit made a check of a home 
in Ghura 501 in Dededo. The home belonged to a friend of McCord. When law enforcement officials were at the home a man and a woman became combative and prevented them from making a check for him.

Balajadia adds Officers then recognized McCord trying to flee
from the back side of the house.  Officers ran after him and eventually caught him. Officers then went back to the residence
and arrested both the male and female.

McCord was wanted for questioning in reference to the same shooting incident that Paul Daniel Cepeda was arrested for earlier this week.


Along with McCord arrested were 19-year old Anastacio Sablan Cepeda and 49-year old Katherine Joseph Nason. The two were arrested for obstructing government operations, resisting arrest, hindering apprehension and guilt by established by complicity.
