The Guam Visitors Bureau has expressed concern about the spate of vandalism that has hit Tumon, the island’s tourist district.

GVB vice president Gerry Perez said during Thursday’s board meeting that a number of facilities and establishments in Tumon have been vandalized during the past few weeks.

These include GVB bus shelters and trash bins that had been uprooted and toppled over.

Streetlight photocells have also been tampered affecting two sections of Pale San Vitores. This has resulted in portions of Tumon becoming dark, posing a danger to the few tourists in Tumon.

In addition, the business sign of Savage Sandwich in Tumon had been removed three times during the past two months. Sister company Primo Pizzakaya also reported trash being strewn around the premises.

This prompted the two establishments to issue a statement on social media accusing some members of the military of the misdeed.

In response, Joint Region Marianas said it is deeply concerned with the vandalism and that the incidents do not represent the professionalism of the military.
