Warrant out for two men in alleged theft


A bench warrant has been issued for two men who were allegedly involved in a theft in Kagman back in November after they failed to show up in court.

Amado Kereman and Demson Sachuo, both 18, failed to appear before the court last Monday for a status conference.

Superior Court Presiding Judge Robert Naraja issued a bench warrant for both men and a bail of $1,000 was imposed, along with it.

However, Sachuo’s bench warrant was held in abeyance as requested by his lawyer.

Both men have been charged with conspiracy, burglary, and theft and criminal mischief.

According to court information, police responded to a burglary in progress on Nov. 27, 2018, at 2:28am in Kagman 3, behind the CYC store.

Police identified the suspects as Kereman and Sachuo.

Kereman refused to give a statement to the police, but Sachuo allegedly admitted that it was his idea to break into a neighbor’s house.

During the preliminary hearing, it was learned that Kereman allegedly conspired with Sachuo to burglarize the neighboring home while two other suspects stayed back.

The two other suspects, however, allegedly warned Kereman and Sachuo when flashing lights were seen from a distance

Sachuo told police that he and Kereman took a backpack, a small lamp, and batteries from the house.

It was learned during the preliminary hearing that other stolen items included perfume, watches, and domino chips that have yet to be recovered.

The stolen items came out to a sum of $1,258, excluding repairs to the burglarized home.
