The Guam Police Department is searching for a man accused of stealing money from a person at the Micronesia Mall on March 10, according to Sgt. Paul Tapao, GPD spokesman.

GPD officers from the Dededo precinct responded to the mall at about 7:40 p.m. and learned that the suspect took the money as one person was giving it to a relative, Tapao said. The money was to be used to buy items at GameStop, according to Tapao. As the person was handing the money over, the suspect ran between them and grabbed it, Tapao said.
