War on drugs being fought through mail

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The US Postal Inspector and law enforcement are cracking down on individuals who are sending drugs through the mail. Search warrants filed with the District Court of Guam confirm that separate packages were sent from California to Kyle Toves of Dededo, Jerry Cruz of Hagatna, and to an address at Perez Acres in Yigo that contained crystal methamphetamine. 

Despite efforts to conceal the drugs, one package contained 50 grams of the drug Ice hidden in a hollowed out Alcoholics Anonymous book.  Another had 55 grams of the drug packed inside a heavily-taped green cardboard box while the last parcel had 33 grams of the drug tucked into a t-shirt.  Authorities were able to identify the packages with the assistance of drug detector dogs.

No criminal charges have been handed down in the cases at this time.
