Woman cooperates with feds in drug-trafficking case

Posted: Updated:

Guam - A Yigo woman has signed a plea agreement and is cooperating with federal authorities in an investigation into drug trafficking between California and Guam.  Irene Fernandez signed a deal pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute crystal methamphetamine.

Fernandez admits that she and others conspired and wired more than $38,000 to individuals in California to purchase the drugs and mail them to Guam. The drug trafficking occurred between October of last year and this July.  The feds learned of the illegal activity when they found nearly 500 grams of 100% purity meth hidden in a metal pot and stein mailed from an address in San Diego. 

Fernandez is waiting to officially change her plea before a judge in the District Court.
