Alleged thief gives update on Kaela Mart robbery


New information on a robbery that happened in Kaela’s Mart has recently been revealed in a police investigation.

According to a magistrate’s report, on Tuesday, police interviewed 31-year-old Km Reifich who was involved in a robbery complaint at Kaela’s Mart in Dededo on October 29 of last year.

The female victim described the man to have a heavy build and dark complexion and wearing a white baseball cap.

The report adds that the victim told police that the man approached the counter with a pack of beer and placed a pistol on the counter. She also adds that the man said obscenities at her while asking for the money and said, “…or I am gonna shoot you.”

The victim said that she gave him $70 before he left while a second suspect held the door open.

Police then conducted an investigation and provided a photo lineup to the victim and identified Km Reifich as being the man who robbed the store.

Court documents added that, on Tuesday, almost 3 months after the robbery took place, police interviewed Reifich who said that during the robberies he did take part in, “no one really had a plan.”

The report also added that Reifich told police they would split the money following the robbery.

However, court documents then stated that Reifich told officers that he was drunk and that “he denied any knowledge of the robbery.”

KM Reifich was charged with second-degree robbery as a second-degree felony with a special allegation of possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony.

According to DOC records, in 2018, Reifich was previously charged with driving while impaired. In 2014, he was charged with disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, and criminal trespassing among others.
