Police seeking help with Umatac cases
THE man who allegedly committed Friday’s armed robbery of Route 8 Mini Mart was arrested yesterday and is now behind bars.
Anthony L.G. Campos, 25, was apprehended by members of the Guam Police Department Criminal Investigation Division and was charged with robbery, reckless conduct, unlawful discharge, terrorizing, and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony.
The robbery occurred at around 7:45 p.m. and was recorded by the store’s video surveillance cameras. The suspect was armed with a handgun and was wearing a cloth on his face, exposing only his eyes and nose.
As soon as he entered the store, the suspect demanded money from the cashier and fired one shot from the handgun into the counter.
No one was hurt as the cashier was able to duck for cover under the counter.
The man fled the store after getting the money from the cash register.
Meanwhile, Guam Crime Stoppers is encouraging the public to come forward if they have any information regarding two robberies in Umatac.
The first robbery occurred at about 11:05 a.m. on Sept. 13 when a tourist couple arrived at the Cetti Bay Overlook, parked, secured their rental vehicle and proceeded to enjoy the scenery.
When the tourists returned to the car, a 2013 Nissan Cube, they discovered that the front passenger window was damaged and that a purse containing valuables was missing.
On Sept. 29, another family of tourists were parked at the Sella Bay Overlook when they heard a loud smashing sound coming from the parking lot. When they checked their car, they saw that the 2012 Nissan Cube passenger window had been damaged and a purse was missing.
The Guam Police Department Criminal Investigation Division and Guam Crime Stoppers are asking for the public’s help in solving these crimes.
