Officers to involve Feds in senator's son's arrest; Terlaje: "No one is above the law."

By Troy Torres

Joshua Terlaje, the man Guam conservation officers arrested late Friday night on gun-related felonies, is a convicted felon with a lengthy rap sheet of violent crime arrests.

The federal government forbids convicted felons from possessing firearms.

"We will also coordinate and work with ATF," Lt. Richard Ragadio told Kandit. "We will follow through until everything is confirmed and evaluated as far as the weapon goes."

The Guam Department of Agriculture law enforcement officers also are conducting an investigation to determine who is the registered owner of the firearm Mr. Terlaje had, when he was arrested.

Sen. Jose "Pedo" Terlaje, Joshua Terlaje's father, issued the following statement:

"My son Joshua and another individual were arrested this weekend by the Department of Agriculture's conservation officers while hunting. I do not condone their actions and as with any adult, they must take responsibility for the consequences of those actions after they are given due process. No one is above the law."
