Man robbed at Micronesian Mall ATM; suspect found one month later


Guam – It’s a reminder that you should always be aware of your surroundings, especially when withdrawing money from an ATM.

A robbery allegedly took place at the Micronesia Mall as a victim withdrew money from the ATM. According to a magistrate complaint the victim withdrew $200.00.

In that moment an individual identified as Reynold Jay Benjamin John, ran up to the ATM and allegedly snatched the money out of the victim’s hand.

Nearly one month later police were able to track down the suspect who was being held at the Department of Corrections in an unrelated case.
