Guam - A federal drug case filed back in June of last year was made public today.  Antoniette Ignacio pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute methamphetamine. She admitted to picking up packages sent to her mailing address and delivering them to Anthony Villanueva. 

She admitted that she received $1,000 as payment and knew the packages contained crystal meth.  The postal inspector caught on to the conspiracy when Ignacio was caught picking up a package that contained close to 48 grams of nearly 100% pure meth. 

Court documents state Villanueva got the drugs from a source in California. Ignacio's sentencing is set for June 3. 

Villanueva meanwhile was charged in connection with Mateo Sardoma drug ring and pleaded guilty.  He is awaiting sentencing which is set for April 28.
