Korean man will work with feds

Guam - A Korean man who claims he was paid $30,000 to bring a suitcase to Guam from Manila has agreed to cooperate with federal authorities. In May, Hwang Gyoo Choi made a trip to Guam at the request of a "Mr. Lee" who gave him $30,000 after he'd lost at gambling.  Choi told authorities he was instructed to bring a suitcase that contained two magazines and his personal clothing and deliver it to someone on Guam who would return it with diamonds. 

Choi was supposed to bring the suitcase back to the Philippines, but when he arrived on Guam, Customs officers found 387 grams of crystal methamphetamine in a hidden compartment.  Choi will change his plea later next month.
