Indictment unsealed in drug ring

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - A federal indictment was unsealed on Friday in a major drug ring that federal authorities have been monitoring for six years.  Gina Fresnoza Medina, Rodean Villa and Henry Pangilinan Fresnoza were charged with conspiracy to distribute methampethamine hydrochloride, conspiracy to import meth, importation of meth, possession with the intent to distribute and money laundering.

According to the indictment, the three were involved with others in a drug distribution ring that dated back to January 2004.  Medina, Villa and Fresnoza were picked up by federal authorities last week and medina pleaded not guilty to the charges.  The indictment alleges the three and others also wire transferred more than $100,000 to the Philippines - proceeds the feds allege were from the distribution of the drug Ice.

Villa was arrested earlier this year after he was found trying to bring in more than 200 grams of Ice concealed in a cake he brought back from the Philippines.  He and Fresnoza are scheduled to appear in court to answer to the charges on Tuesday, while trial is scheduled for July 13.
