Fingerprints led to the conviction of a man, who will now spend time prison term for burglarizing a home in Yigo.

Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo on Thursday sentenced Jeremy Dean Isaac to five years’ incarceration, with all but one year suspended.

Isaac was convicted of burglary as a second-degree felony and theft of property as a second -degree felony in connection with a burglary back in July 2018.

According to the Attorney General’s Office, “Isaac broke a window to enter a home and left with watches, guitars and a number of other items. Isaac also caused much damage to the interior of the home.”

AGO said the Guam Police Department obtained fingerprints from the Yigo residence that confirmed Isaac’s identity.

In 2017, GPD said the use of the automated fingerprint database system has helped GPD identify suspects in several cases.

Isaac was one of the individuals who was identified after running finger prints taken from the 2016 Perez Acres burglary, through the Crime Labs Automated Fingerprint Identification System.

GPD said Isaac was the victim’s neighbor.
