GPD: Bomb Threats at GDOE Schools Costing the Community

314

GPD is reminding the community, that information can be provided to Guam CrimeStoppers at 477-HELP (4357).

Guam – The Guam Police Department is working with the Guam Department of Education to investigate recent bomb threats.

“The law is clear, bomb threats are considered ‘terroristic conduct’, which is a third-degree felony,” said Police Chief J.I. Cruz.

The threats have interrupted the education of thousands of students, and are costing the government of Guam and the federal government thousands of dollars. Superintendent Fernandez has asked the community to help track down the people responsible for shutting down schools.

Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio and Chief Cruz also are reaching out to the Neighborhood Watch groups and encouraging members to provide any information they may have.

“This is costing the community in terms of man hours of our police department, the military’s bomb squads, and other supporting agencies,” said the Lieutenant Governor. “What’s even more costly, however, is the time our students are losing in the classroom, as well as extra-curricular activities that help our students build a strong foundation of success. Anyone with information is asked to please call police or CrimeStoppers.”

“If you call and the information you provide leads to an arrest, you could get a cash reward up to $1,000,” said GPD Officer Paul Tapao.
