Guam priest resigns after arrest for custodial interference

March 18, 2015

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) — The Catholic Church says a priest in Guam has resigned as pastor after being arrested.

The Pacific Daily News (http://bit.ly/1CwgQwt ) reports the Archdiocese of Agana says it accepted Rev. Luis Camacho’s resignation effectively immediately. Camacho was the pastor of several parishes in the U.S. territory.

The archdiocese says Camacho was booked and released Tuesday on allegations of custodial interference.

Guam law defines custodial interference as taking a child or an incompetent person from their lawful custodian without the right to do so. It may also mean taking a minor from lawful custody and seriously injuring the child or violating a court order related to child custody.

The archdiocese says it’s fully cooperating with civil authorities. It’s also investigating.
