Guam - A civilian security guard for Andersen Air Force Base was busted for selling marijuana on his birthday and admitted to selling the drug on several other occasions. GPD got the tip from the Air Force's Office of Special Investigations, which conducted two controlled buys with 28-year-old Joshua John Benavente before turning the case over to GPD, which in turn conducted their investigation leading to his arrest.

Benavente faces additional charges for selling the drugs from a home located within 100 yards of a local elementary school. We should note that he did not sell drugs on the base. According to court documents, Benavente said he was selling marijuana for side income.
