Guam - A federal complaint has been filed in the District Court against Melvin John Salas Naputi.  The complaint states that yesterday, law enforcement agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms' task force conducted a controlled-buy operation in Tamuning and Chalan Pago. An ATF confidential informant purchased almost 5 grams of the drug Ice from Naputi. 

Authorities found Naputi exiting the restroom of the Route 1 amusement establishment in Tamuning.  They conducted a search of the restroom where they found a cell phone, more than $4,000 in ATF-marked serial funds, a glass pipe, crystal meth and other drug paraphernalia. 

The complaint charges Naputi with possession with the intent to distribute methampethamine.
