November 13, 2014

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) — A Guam man suspected of taking part in the theft of a U.S. Navy antenna valued at more than $50,000 has reached a plea agreement.

Pacific Daily News (http://bit.ly/1uqHhO7) reports 44-year-old Franklin J. Gogo is one of five men charged in the case.

Court documents filed Thursday say Gogo agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit theft of government property and will receive sentencing considerations for accepting responsibility and testifying in the case.

Prosecutors say Gogo and the other four men entered Navy property in Barrigada on Nov. 7, 2102, found the aluminum antenna on the ground, removed bolts and carried it off in pieces in duffel bags.

The pieces were sold to a recycling facility.

The $51,400 antenna was not recovered.
