New bank robbery suspects plead not guilty

Guam - It's yet another strange twist to the Bank of Guam robbery case. As the three new suspects in last year's Yigo bank robbery pled not guilty to the charges today, even after two of them confessed to the crime weeks ago.

Irvin White III, Jackery White, and Edward Baza were arrested earlier this month after Irvin turned himself in to police.  In his confession, Irvin implicated himself as one of the men who entered the bank demanding money, his father Jackery as the lookout and getaway driver, and Baza as the gunman. Although police never recovered the stolen cash, Irvin admitted the three men split the $11,000 and that he used his share to buy "ice" and put the rest in his checking account. Irvin also reported to police that Jathan Tedtaotao, the man currently incarcerated for the heist, had nothing to do with it. Last year, Tedtaotao turned himself in and implicated Ricky Mcintosh Jr., Vincent Santos, and Antonio Quitugua as his co-actors. Because Tedtaotao failed to testify against the three men, they were acquitted of the robbery charges but remain behind bars for other cases.  Meanwhile today's suspects will appear for a criminal trial setting on February 3 before Judge James Canto.
