FBI needs help catching man who phoned-in bomb threat

Guam - Can you identify a man's voice from a recorded phone call and help authorities catch him?

Although months have passed since the call was initially made to 911, the FBI is looking to the community for help.

At the request of the FBI, these phone calls have been made public.

But why?

The feds are hoping to snag the individual who threatened to detonate a bomb through a part of Dededo if two detainees weren't released.  

It was back on May 17, 2013 e-911 received back to back calls.
The caller states a bomb would go off at the Dollar Housing, also known as Sagan Linayan, in Dededo if detainees Ricky Mcintosh Jr. and Jathan Tedtaotao were not released from jail.

The bomb threat forced the evacuation of more than 100 families in the area. Emergency response officials and the military's bomb squad responded to the scene where they discovered a suspicious package before giving the all clear at three a.m.

If you recall, Mcintosh and Tedtaotao were two of the four men implicated in the Bank of Guam robbery back in February. Specifically, Tedtaotao told police he and Mcintosh entered the Yigo branch with handguns taking $11,000 from teller drawers while Vincent Santos served as the getaway driver and Antonio Quitugua served as the lookout before the robbery occurred.

Cold feet however got the best of Tedtaotao who refused to testify against his alleged co-conspirators. Because no other evidence could link the other men to the case, Mcintosh, Santos, and Quitugua were acquitted of the bank robbery charges but remained behind bars in connection to other cases.

If you have any information regarding these bomb threats, who may have placed the hoax device at the housing area, or recognize the voice on the recordings, you're asked to call FBI at 645-1822, GPD at 475-8615-17, or Guam Crime Stoppers at 477-HELP (4357)

Guam Crime Stoppers reminds the public that they do not use caller id and you do not have to leave your name. You can also receive a cash reward if the information provided leads to the arrest or conviction of the person or persons responsible for the crime.
