Park patrol officers arrest 2 for camping without a permit at Ipan beach park


On Saturday, April 24, 2021, at approximately 10:00 am, a 51-year-old male was arrested at Ipan Beach Park by the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) Park Patrol Officers for T-9 GCA Criminal Trespass.

The arrestee was warned numerous times over the past year about camping
in the park without a permit. He was also counseled numerous times for litter violations.

In accordance with Title 23, Chapter 3 of the Guam Administrative Rules and Regulations, violators of the rules and regulations may be expelled from the Park System. If the offender fails to comply with the expulsion and returns to the park, he/she may be arrested for Criminal Trespass.

On Monday, April 26, 2021, at approximately 9:20 am, a 40-year-old male was also arrested for the same offense at the same park under the same circumstances. He was repeatedly warned and counseled for camping without a permit and litter violations.

Both arrestees were booked and released. Any further violations by these arrestees or other violators may result in an arrest and confinement.

Camping permits are issued to ensure someone is accountable for the clean-up and the
compliance of park rules and regulations for the duration of the permit. The permits are $30.00/night with a refundable cleaning deposit.

DPR reminds the public that the parks are for their leisure and enjoyment but the park rules need to be followed in order to preserve peace and or order which will result in more clean and beautiful parks.
