(Tumon, Guam) A 15-year-old boy taken into police custody for a curfew violation Monday was found with stolen property taken from Maite Heights Apartments.
According to Sgt. Paul Tapao, police spokesman:
On Monday March 23, officers assigned to the Central Precinct Command entertained a theft of property complaint at the Maite Heights Apartments.
Preliminary reports suggest that based on the information obtained from the complainant and items missing, officers learned of a 15-year-old boy that was taken into custody by GPD's Juvenile Investigation Section for curfew violation earlier that morning and had items matching the reported stolen property.
A follow up was made, in which officers met with the 15-year-old boy and his father at their residence. The 15-year-old boy was later taken into custody and charged for Home Invasion and Theft of Property. He was confined at the Department of Youth Affairs.
This case has been forwarded to the Office of the Attorney General for prosecution.
