A Charge Back Clerk employed at Guam’s Navy Exchange has been indicted on 16 counts of theft of government property.
Jesse Cruz Camacho was employed with the NEX for roughly three years from June 2016 to October 2019. It was discovered that during this time he engaged in a scheme to steal electronic devices from the NEX main store to then sell for profit.
As a Charge Back Clerk at the NEX main store, Camacho was responsible for receiving returned items, logging items requiring repair, and transporting returned items to a repair facility as needed.
But it appears that Camacho used his position to swindle the federal government.
The indictment reads, “after stealing the electronic items from the NEX main store, Camacho disposed of the items by selling them using a Facebook social media account and by other means.”
Camacho stole various Apple MacBooks, iPads and Microsoft tablet computers amounting to nearly $20,000.
The indictment also provides a notice of forfeiture, upon conviction of the offense, he will have to pay back what was stolen.
Camacho was released on personal recognizance and placed on pre-trial release.
His next court date is set for December 31, followed by trial which is set for January 12, 2021.
