SUPERIOR Court Associate Judge Teresa Kim-Tenorio on Tuesday granted the request of Maynard Dela Cruz to be released to his aunt as his third-party custodian.

Dela Cruz, 29, and Rollin Ulechong Skang, 20, are accused by the government of burglarizing the Division of Parks and Recreation office in As Perdido.

Dela Cruz, represented by Chief Public Defender Douglas Hartig,  requested the court to reduce the $20,000 cash bail it previously imposed to $5,000.

Hartig also requested the court to release Dela Cruz to his aunt after posting 10% of the $5,000.

Judge Kim-Tenorio granted the request and ordered Dela Cruz released to his aunt.

Assistant Attorney General Heather Barcinas, who appeared for the government, found the third-party custodian.

The third-party custodian told the prosecution that she will call 911 if  Dela Cruz does not comply with the court order release conditions.

On Aug. 17, police received a call regarding a burglary and theft of a government office where five brush cutters, a battery pack, a blower, and a container of gas were reported missing.

The Theft Apprehension Select Coalition Task Force of the Department of Public Safety has identified Dela Cruz and Skang as the perpetrators of the burglary in As Perdido after an informant provided information regarding individuals selling equipment that were reported stolen.

Dela Cruz and Skang were both charged with conspiracy, burglary, and theft.

Skang remains in the custody of the Department of Corrections.

Judge Kim-Tenorio appointed attorney Alexis Fallon to represent Skang.

The two defendants are ordered to return to court for an arraignment on Sept. 28 at 9 a.m. before presiding judge Roberto C. Naraja.
