Guam - Guam Customs and Quarantine has revoked the entry of a vehicle brought to the island by Auto Traders last weekend. On Monday Customs officers cleared and inspected a jeepney, but received assurances from the owner that it would only be used for static display purposes because it does not meet U.S. Department of Transportation specifications.
Despite signing an agreement that the vehicle would not be driven on Guam's roads, Customs officials say they received numerous reports of the jeepney out and about. Additionally, Customs determined the vehicle was brought to Guam under false pretenses.
They've ordered the jeepney to be sent back to the Philippines or be destroyed.
