Guam - Guam Customs and Quarantine is cleaning house. The Customs and Quarantine Evidence Room is loaded with pounds of marijuana and methampethamines that were collected over the years from passengers entering Guam, who tried to smuggle the illegal substances into the island.
Customs spokesperson Lieutenant Ferdinand Soriano says the agency is looking to dispose of the evidence, saying, "We are working together with the Attorney General of Guam to have a look at these case, to inventory them, and we are checking if any of these cases have been adjudicated or if there is no more need for us to hold on to evidence and we will have it disposed of."
The evidence has piling up over the years because Customs has lacked the money and the personnel to properly dispose of the hazardous and illegal items.
