Guam - The government has filed a forfeiture claim on seized items found during a search warrant in Dededo.  The property belongs to former police officer Roy Pablo, Ah-Rum Kim, and Stephen Kim.  Pablo and his girlfriend appeared in court today.  Both are on pre-trial release while Stephen remains behind bars.

The three pleaded not guilty after they were arrested for manufacturing and distributing marijuana in their home.  The government is going after Pablo's rifle, Ah-Rum's car and digital scales and laptop computer as well Stephen's Kim's LED grow lights and fan units and portable air conditioner as well $436 in cash.  All of the items were seized by police.  Pablo today told the judge he is challenging the forfeiture of his personal rifle.

The court set another hearing for April 28 to determine if the parties want to challenge or forfeit the other items to the government.
