Homeless woman confesses to multiple thefts on Guam

HAGÅTÑA (The Guam Daily Post) — A 39-year-old homeless woman is accused of breaking into parked vehicles at various locations around the island, and stealing from two churches.

Adriane Lee Jennings was arrested Monday and charged in connection with four motor vehicle burglaries; three criminal trespass and theft of property cases; and a drug possession charge.

She was taken into custody after police responded to a reported burglary of a motor vehicle at the Tumon Medical Clinic.

GPD spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia said officers arrived at the clinic and witnesses pointed to a female who was running down the street in the opposite direction.

Jennings was detained and brought to the Tumon precinct, where she reportedly confessed to multiple thefts, burglaries and other offenses.

Balajadia reports that Jennings admitted to breaking into vehicles and stealing items at the University Condos in Mangilao, the Guam Premium Outlets and Holiday Resort parking lots; several hotels in Tumon and Tamuning; as well as stealing “multiple items” from the Santa Teresita Church in Mangilao and the Iglesia ni Cristo in Agat, according to the release.

Guam Police Chief Joseph Cruz thanked the public for assisting in the arrest, saying “because of community involvement and the hard work of the men and women of the Guam Police Department...we were able to close several cases and prevent others from becoming victims.”
