Plaque Thief Sentenced In Federal Court

War In The Pacific National Historical Park

National Park News

Joseph Elibosang was arrested in July, 2007, in connection with the theft of 34 bronze nameplates from the park’s Asan Bay Overlook. The plaques carried the names of thousands of Chamorros and U.S. servicemen killed during World War II. Last October, Elibosang pled guilty to charges of theft of government property, destruction of a veteran’s memorial, and conspiracy to transport stolen goods to foreign commerce. Last week, he was sentenced to 21 months in prison and ordered to pay the federal government $58,800 in restitution. The assistant U.S. attorney is also considering filing charges against the recycling center that bought the plaques from Elibosang once they are returned from Hong Kong, where they were shipped.
