DYA Escapees Apprehended


Guam – The 2 escapees who went through a gap in an unfinished perimeter fence Monday afternoon have been apprehended.

Acting DYA Director Adonis Mendiola reports that as a result of a tip from a citizen, the pair were found just after 8 pm Tuesday evening in an area beside the Star Building in Harmon.

A DYA tracking team with the help of Guam Police located the 2 teens, an 18 year old and a 17 year old, both males.

The two boys were non-violent offenders who were being held on drug and alcohol abuse charges.

They have been returned to DYA to continue their drug and alcohol treatment. They’ll also have to answer to a juvenile drug court judge for their escape said Mendiola.
