Guam - The U.S. Marshals Violent Crime Task Force arrested Joseph Mitchell Casil at Liguan Terrace in Dededo yesterday for aiding and abetting a known fugitive and providing false information of a known fugitive.
According to a release, Task Force officers were conducting a surveillance of a residence where Fugitive John PANGELINAN was scene sweeping debris outside a residence in Liguan Terrace. On July 17, investigation information was developed that Pangelinan was known to be driving a Black, Chevy Tahoe.

So Task Force officers left the residence and maintained surveillance when CASIL and PANGELINAN were spotted leaving together in a vehicle.
