Guam - 48-year-old Arnold Anthony Maanao is being held on $10,000 cash bail for trying to bring in high-grade marijuana to Guam. Maanao was arrested on numerous possession with the intent to distribute and importation charges after the U.S. Postal Inspector found two express mail packages containing marijuana.
According to the magistrate's complaint, Maanao allegedly brought in the drugs on February 27 and earlier this week tried to pick up a package containing 242 grams of marijuana. Maanao admitted to wiring money to Las Vegas, Nevada to pay for the shipment of the drugs that authorities say is worth between $2,000 and $3,000.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 8.
