Airport police corral thousands in stolen property
by Nick Delgado
Guam - More arrests are pending in connection with last week's bust of an airport baggage pilfering ring. Ten employees with DGS, an independent ground handling company were arrested accused of stealing from passenger baggage over a fourth-month timeframe.
According to Airport Police Chief Bob Camacho they are trying to retrieve and return the stolen items to their rightful owners. He said, "We've recovered several thousands dollars worth of property but at this point we cannot relinquish that until the case is completed or at least have the clearance from the attorney general offices."
The airport's close circuit television system and witnesses were key to cracking the case. As a result, the airport has stepped-up security.
