Arrest made in connection with San Jose Mart robbery

San Jose Mart's video surveillance showed two males entering the store with hoodies, one armed with a machete and the other brandishing what appears to be a handgun.

An arrest has been made in connection with the robbery at San Jose Mart that took place early Sunday morning.

According to Guam Police Department spokesman Paul Tapao, a follow-up was conducted by GPD’s Criminal Investigation Division and with the assistance of witnesses, detectives were able to identify a possible suspect.

On Tuesday, June 25, a search warrant was executed at a home in Tamuning.

As a result of the issuance of the search warrant, detectives took into custody Heric Suda Andrew, a 19-year-old male from the FSM.

Police also confiscated evidence related to the investigation.

Heric Suda Andrew was later arrested for the following offenses: robbery; use of a deadly weapon in commission of a felony; terrorizing; reckless conduct; felonious restraint; theft by threatening; criminal trespass; conspiracy; guilt established by complicity; and criminal facilitation.

He was booked and confined.

The case has been forwarded to the Office of the Attorney General for prosecution.

Although an arrest has been made, Tapao said GPD is continuing to work at locating the second suspect in the case.
