Guam - Former Department of Corrections officer Eric Tedtaotao is asking to be released to a third-party custodian with conditions and electronic monitoring. He along with his wife Macrina and Bertha Moore are accused of smuggling into Guam large amounts of crystal methamphetamine from the Philippines. Macrina is already on pre-trial release while Moore entered into a plea agreement with the feds. Tedtaotao argues that his case has continuously been delayed and therefore is requesting pre-trial release. He's been detained since February and has pleaded not guilty to the charges. As we reported Moore in her plea agreement admitted that she concealed the drugs in her rectal cavity when traveling from the Philippines to Guam. When she would arrive on island, she would allegedly turn the drugs over to the Tedtaotaos'.
