5 minors picked up for vandalizing properties in Sinajana


Guam – Five vandals in Sinajana won’t be leaving their marks on the village anymore thanks to the watchful eye of the neighborhood watch group.

The five vandals according to GPD Spokesperson Paul Tapao were all minors between the ages of 12 years old and 17 years old, and are allegedly responsible for vandalizing property within the village of Sinajana.

Tapao says that the minors were allegedly seen by a Neighborhood Watch member attempting to open car doors along Bein Venida Avenue.

The information was shared with the Sinajana Neighborhood watch group who indicated that the same group of kids were also seen vandalizing a wall on the same road before running off towards the church.

They were also linked to graffiti found on St. Jude Church, the Mayor’s office parking lot and a bus shelter on Calle Angel Flores street.

Tapao says that the five minors were located at the Sinajana Mayor’s Office by Mayor Robert Hoffman and his staff.

The five minors were taken into custody and charged with Criminal mischief, Graffiti, criminal facilitation and conspiracy.

They were later relinquished to the custody of their parents and provided a notice to appear in court.
