A man convicted of second-degree robbery is being transferred from the Department of Corrections to U.S. CIS today.
Tait Metek was identified by U.S. immigrations as having committed deportable offenses and placed a detainer on his file. He is an FSM citizen from Chuuk state. The Governor has commuted his sentence, placing him in the custody of U.S. immigrations officials for removal from Guam.
Metek has served six years and seven months in prison after being convicted of second-degree robbery as a second-degree felony, which had a special allegation of possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony. According to the magistrate report, he struck an 82-year-old woman who was tending to her store at Chamorro Village and stole a pouch containing $300. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and was eligible for parole in 2018.
The Office of the Attorney General assisted in ensuring the victim was notified.
Metek has been arrested in other cases for retail theft, criminal trespass, public drunkenness, aggravated assault and terrorizing.
Metek is the ninth person who has been taken out of the Department of Corrections and either returned to his home nation or given into the custody of federal immigrations officials for deportation.
