Two men and a woman were caught red-handed in the parking lot of the Verona Resort trying to make off with a truckload of loot.
They didn’t get far. In fact, police say the suspects didn’t make it out of the parking lot.
GPD Spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao, in a release, identified the individuals as Jesse Taimanglo Meno, Curtis Jay Taitague, and Rae Ann Quidichay.
Tapao says on Tuesday police responded to the Verona Resort for a burglary in progress and noted a Toyota pickup leaving the rear parking lot entrance. Their presence at the hotel was peculiar as the hotel has been closed down.
Police say they stopped the vehicle near the rear loading dock area and observed the truck’s bed was filled with numerous hotel items including tables and chairs.
Quidachay told police “she asked Meno and Taitague if what they were doing was illegal and they both laughed and avoided the question.”
All three were arrested for burglary, theft of property, criminal trespass.
Police have confirmed that Taitague was previously arrested in 2019.
While the two men were booked and confined to the Department of Corrections, Quidachay was not charged in court and was released.
