An investigation by the Guam Police Department Criminal Investigation Division led to the arrest of two women in connection with $40,000 worth of alleged fraudulent card transactions.
The investigation was conducted after a complaint was filed by Kmart Guam management.
• Candelaria Ferminia Acfalle Blas, 29 from Dededo, on suspicion of fraudulent use of a credit card; theft of property; conspiracy and guilt established by complicity; and
• Abigail Maanao Caporno, 28, on suspicion of fraudulent use of a credit card; theft of property; and conspiracy.
The women were booked and confined.
The investigation stemmed from a report filed in September 2018. The complaint stated certain individuals were using a prepaid “My Vanilla” card which had a certain cash value.
Detectives discovered that the use of the cards between March 2018 through September of 2018 involved a total transaction of over $40,000.
The case has been forwarded to the Office of the Attorney General for prosecution.
