DPS chief: 3 burglars arrested

DEPARTMENT of Public Safety Commissioner Robert Guerrero said police have apprehended three persons who admitted to burglarizing 11 establishments.

“We caught them and have recovered some of the stolen items,” he added.

Police provided no further information as of press time.

In the aftermath of Typhoon Yutu, several business establishments and private homes on Saipan were burglarized.

“It was really bad,” Guerrero said. “We would receive a report of one or two burglaries each night.”

Asked about the continued absence of Jackie Rae, the DPS public information officer, Guerrero said: “I understand the frustration that you guys are having as far as getting police information,  but we are trying our best.”

Guerrero said Jackie Rae is still in the states for family medical reasons. She went on leave in October but was supposed to return to Saipan in December.

“We are trying to reach out to her in regards to her status — if she is going to come back; if not then we have to replace her,” Guerrero said.
