A man who was accused in a hit-and-run crash in Agat was arrested after being caught with drugs, according to court documents.

Investigators also found out that the suspect allegedly was involved in a theft reported last November.

Jesse Fegurgur Belen, 52, was charged with criminal mischief, possession of a Schedule II controlled substance, theft of property and forgery, each as third-degree felonies. Each charge includes a notice of committing a felony while on felony release.

According to court documents, police responded to a crash at the Agat Marina parking lot on Tuesday.

Authorities found the suspect at a nearby restaurant.

During a search of the suspect’s car, officers found various baggies with methamphetamine, along with several pipes with meth residue, documents state.

Investigators also learned that the suspect allegedly asked a woman known to him to cash a forged check for $800 that was apparently taken during a theft reported at an apartment building in Tamuning on Nov. 4, 2020.

The pair were successful in cashing the forged check after buying more than $160 worth of items from a local store, documents state.

The suspect allegedly denied stealing the check.

Court documents also state Belen was arrested in 2018 in a separate theft case.
