Frances Quinata turns herself into police

Posted: Updated:

54-year- old Frances Manglona Quinata turned herself into the Guam Police Department's Criminal Investigation Division this morning at around ten o'clock.  KUAM News has confirmed she was later arrested for Theft of Property and Theft by Deception.  

According to police spokesperson officer AJ Balajadia her arrest is not related to the case involving the Guam Girls Fast Pitch Softball Team.  

In that case Quinata allegedly posed as a travel agent, but didn't purchase the tickets for the girls to fly to Delaware to compete in the 2015 Senior League Softball World Series. It's estimated the girls were scammed out of nearly $40,000. The national organization eventually stepped in and paid for the tickets for Team Guam.  Since the story went viral, nearly one dozen others came forward making similar allegations against Quinata.  

Balajadia confirms the arrest today is in connection to an individual who filed a complaint against Quinata for allegedly making travel arrangements for what was supposed to be a roundtrip ticket to Texas last month.  The ticket was supposed to be for a trip that was to depart on July 10th with a return flight on July 19th. Balajadia says instead the victim did not have a return ticket. When the individual went to the United Counter in Texas, the person was told the ticket had not been paid for.

The victim was stuck in Texas and only managed to return to Guam on August 1st.

Balajadia says the investigation involving the Girls Softball team, along with the nearly dozen others, remains under investigation.

    Adelup wants public hearing for hospital bills

    Two pieces of proposed legislation that aren't on the next session agenda are Bills 141 and 142. The administration is making yet another attempt to get lawmakers to have those measures go up for a public hearing. Governor Calvo submitted both five months ago:  One to authorize a $125 million bond for GMH improvements, the other would raise the business privilege tax from 4% to 4.75% to service the bond debt and fund GMH's chronic budget shortfall.
