An off-duty police officer’s attentiveness not only helped recover a stolen vehicle but also nabbed three men for drug possession.

A vehicle stolen one month ago was spotted by an off-duty officer motoring in Barrigada Heights. The off-duty officer followed the vehicle to the parking lot of Todu Maoleg in Barrigada.

The complaint states that four individuals were in the vehicle and one of those individuals exited the vehicle. While no charges were brought against that individual, the complaint implicates Cisco Eclavea-Francisco, Raymond Cruz Aguon and Deneb Dacasin.

Francisco was found operating the vehicle and he told police that he was given the car by an acquaintance. Inside the vehicle, police found a sling bag belonging to Francisco containing $750 in cash, six resealable bags with methamphetamine, numerous pills including 34 alpazoram pills a scheduled four controlled substance, and oxycodone a scheduled two controlled substance.

In the back seat, police recovered a backpack with a loaded pistol, 45 clonazepam pills, and pills consistent with Amoxicillin. However, when tested, the pills yielded positive for heroin, a scheduled one controlled substance.

The three men were booked and confined. Francisco was charged with receiving a stolen vehicle, and drug possession with the intent to deliver.

Aguon and Dacasin were charged with possession of schedule 1, 2, and 4 controlled substances, with intent to deliver.
