Guam - Superior Court probation officers found more than what they were expecting when they arrived at a home in Dededo to pick up a minor. What they discovered led them to call the Guam Police Department.

It was around ten o'clock in the morning superior court probation officers arrived to a home in Astumbo Gardens to pick up a minor when they found much more than who they were looking.  The officers knocked on the front door, with no answer they then walked toward the back of the house.

"When the officers went behind the residence they discovered what appeared to be six marijuana plants strewn along a fence line mixed among some ornamental plants they contacted the Guam Police Department and officers from the Dededo Precinct responded," said police spokesperson Lt. Art Paulino officers arrived shortly thereafter and found the marijuana plants ranging from two to feet high and more in a nearby shed.

He added, "The GPD officers confirmed the findings they also made a check of a nearby what appeared to be a greenhouse or garden shed where they found four smaller plants about 1-1and1/2 feet in height mixed together with a money tree in a flower pot."

While GPD officers were at the residence contact was made with a person of interest who consented to a search of the home. "There was a consent to search the residence search was made no other paraphernalia no other drugs were found in the residence," said Paulino.

According to Paulino two persons of interest have been identified. He could not say if one of those individuals is a police officer. "I can tell you that the case is under further investigation there is a couple of people that we are interviewing the residence belongs to an individual I know the officers are confirming who owns the residence so the case is undergoing investigation," he said.

No arrests have been made at this time.
