Vincent Cruz has history of defying parole conditions with illegal firearmsWritten by Janela Carrera
Guam - The man who allegedly held a family hostage at gun point late last month could face additional prison time on top of what he’s already facing for attempted murder.
Vincent Siguenza Cruz is a convicted felon who had just been released from prison about a month before he held a family hostage during a shootout with police, according to court documents. Cruz had served six years in prison under charges of felon in possession of a firearm and was supposed to be under supervised release.
As part of his release conditions, Cruz was not allowed to possess any dangerous weapons, commit any crimes, relocate without notifying the court or associate with any other known felons. According to court papers, Cruz moved in with his girlfriend in the third week of April without notifying his probation officer.
Furthermore, Cruz’s girlfriend, Sofia White Toves, is also a convicted felon.
Cruz could face up to life in prison for the attempted murder charges in local court and an additional two years for revocation of his supervised release in federal court.
