Guam – 18 year old John Joseph Jr. Flores of Yigo has been booked and confined in connection with 2 reported burglaries in Dededo last Thursday night, and a third burglary last Sunday.
According to a release from GPD Spokesman Officer A.J. Balajadia, Dededo Precinct Officers responded to a burglary in the Adacao area of Dededo where a homeowner said he found a man going through his things when he returned home.
The suspect fled, but left his moped behind. A few hours later, another home, in the same area, was broken into.
The burglary “startled” the woman inside, telling her he needed to use a phone. He took her phone and then “locked himself in her bathroom” says Balajadia.

Officer Balajadia also reports that the CID officers involved in the search identify Flores as also being “responsible for a burglary committed last Sunday afternoon.”
