Female corrections officer tests positive for meth

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Another Department of Corrections officer has tested positive for crystal methamphetamine.  The department isn't releasing many details because it is a personnel matter that is currently under investigation.  Several weeks ago the Department of Administration administered 100% drug testing for every uniform and administrative employee at the department. DepCor spokesperson Officer Jeff Limo says a female officer has been assigned to the director's offices pending the results of the investigation.

"We still have about give or take 22 more to go and I hope that we don't get 22. I hope the results are at zero after that," he said.

Just two weeks ago, one male corrections officer tested positive and resigned from the department.  Meanwhile several investigations are underway into who was responsible for bringing cell phones, crystal meth and other contraband into the prison facility.
