Guam - The 2012 Citizen Centric Report shows that more than $12 million of methamphetamines and about $60,000 in marijuana was seized in the last year by Customs and Quarantine agents and other law enforcement agencies. Customs spokesperson Lieutenant Ferdinand Soriano says authorities note the spike in drug importation occurs more often during the summer months. He says customs shifts its personnel during the peak travel seasons, and that method helps them to make the bust.

"That person is first properly processed by the field office and then after our special enforcement people come in and they continue with their investigations which may include more background checks or counter surveillance in the public but I can't say what we do afterwards but it's usually our office and special enforcement to include the K-9's," he said.

Soriano says they notice smugglers more often attempt to bring in the drug Ice.
