Guam - The U.S. Attorney's Office is cracking down on those caught distributing illegal drugs near schools and playgrounds. Larry Packard was indicted for allegedly distributing marijuana on several occasions in 2010 and 2011 near a playground on Andersen Air Force Base and near a school.
He pleaded not guilty to charges of distribution of a controlled substance within a thousand feet of a playground and within a thousand feet of a school, and criminal forfeiture of his 2002 Jeep Cherokee. Packard pleaded not guilty in the District Court this week and was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond.
His trial is set for March 12.
