Guam - Following a hearing in the U.S. District Court of Guam today, Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan released Steve Vincent Zapata. He was picked up on Guam after arriving from Japan and Pakistan, being suspected as having possible ties to terrorist organizations in South Asia and Southeast Asia.
After arriving to Guam, Zapata rented a small storage unit in Tamuning. Federal and local authorities executed a search warrant last weekend. The FBI had since taken over the investigation.
Zapata is also wanted in the state of California for traffic violations.
