Guam – Police are on a manhunt for an individual accused of stealing a bank debit card from a deceased person. 

The power of social media strikes again. Officials from Bank Pacific were able to figure out the identity of the suspect responsible for stealing a significant amount of money.

President of Bank Pacific Phil Flores called Newstalk K57’s Mornings with Patti to confirm that they are in fact looking for the man responsible.

“Unfortunately one of our customers passed away. Next thing we know, someone is using his debit card to take money out of his account through ATMs,” Flores said.

With the help of social media, Flores said they have been able to make out his identity and obtain vital information about the suspect, to include a screenshot of his Facebook page, his name, where he lives and how he gets to work every morning. Flores added that the bank plans to sue and pursue charges against the individual.

“Someone’s gonna sue him. Whether it be we, or the deceased family or both of us, we’re gonna sue him,” Flores said.

Meanwhile, GPD has also confirmed the authenticity of the video that has circulated in social media. According from GPD, the incriminating surveillance footage was from the Bank Pacific ATM at Ocean Vista. The video shows the suspect, who appears to be a Caucasian male, dressed in a gray cut-off shirt and a blue hat.

If you have additional information on the suspect you are encouraged to contact GPD dispatchers at 472-8911 or online at guam.crimestoppersweb.com.
