THE Department of Public Safety has arrested Eric Aguon, 20, on the charge of theft.
Detective Alexander T. Sakisat said police responded to a theft incident in Afetnas on July 5, 2012, at about 8:20 p.m.
The victim reported to police that his air compressor was stolen from his residence.
After inquiries from neighbors, the victim said he recovered his air compressor at his cousin’s house in San Antonio.
A witness told police that Aguon sold the air compressor to another individual who happened to be working for the victim’s cousin.
When confronted, Aguon admitted to police that he went to the victim’s house on July 2, 2012, and took the air compressor.
Yesterday, Department of Corrections officers brought Aguon before Superior Court Judge Perry B. Inos, who “released” Aguon from custody for this case, but remanded him to custody for his 2010 criminal conviction.
Assistant Attorney General Nicole Driscoll represented the CNMI government while the Public Defender’s Office was appointed by the court as Aguon’s counsel.
On Dec. 18, 2011, Aguon was booked and arrested for disturbing the peace, and minor consuming alcohol.
The status of this case was not immediately available.
Aguon was released from prison on Nov. 1, 2011 for his 2010 criminal conviction, and was placed on probation for five and a half years.
In Oct. 2010, Aguon admitted to hitting a restaurant owner with a rock in Chalan Kanoa in May 2010.
Aguon was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment, all suspended, except for 18 months without the possibility of parole.
Aguon and a juvenile were arrested after they robbed Chang Won Restaurant in Chalan Kanoa on May 1, 2010.
They stole $25 from the establishment, police said. No information was available regarding the case filed against the juvenile.
The Attorney General’s Office earlier submitted a petition to revoke Aguon’s probation for his Dec. 2011 arrest.
Regarding the probationer’s 2010 conviction, the AGO at that time said Aguon had not made any payments toward his $100 court assessment fee; had only performed eight hours out of court-ordered 500 hours of community work service; and had failed to report to Community Guidance Center since his referral on Nov. 17, 2011.
