AG drops drug charges in Gajo criminal case

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Criminal charges against a man who admitted to possessing and distributing crystal methamphetamine have been dismissed. Kenrick Gajo's case was set to go to trial this month but during a pre-trial conference on Thursday, the government agreed to dismiss the case without prejudice, meaning they could pursue criminal charges in the future.

Gajo was picked up by police in April 2010 when he admitted to distributing drugs from his auto body shop.  At the time he agreed to cooperate with authorities and provide information on drug trafficking as well as information he claimed to have about a decade old murder.

A plea agreement never materialized and Gajo was charged in court with drug possession and the case was sealed for quite some time.

The Attorney General's Office has not responded to KUAM's inquiries about why the case was dismissed without prejudice.
