Inmates test positive for marijuana

Guam - The Department of Corrections now not only finds itself investigating a stabbing involving two maximum security inmates but how they managed to test positive for marijuana.

It was Tuesday before lunch two maximum security inmates got into a fight leaving one with two stab wounds to the back. The two are housed in the Special Housing Unit where the most violent criminals are held. DOC spokesperson Jeff Limo confirmed the fight was between inmate Frank Pangelinan and Eugene Lane.

Pangelinan stabbed lane with what appears to be a nail like instrument.  Lane is in jail for robbery and is serving 20 years. He is expected to be released in July 2030.  Pangelinan meanwhile is serving life without parole for aggravated murder. As we reported the two maximum security inmates were housed in separate floors in the special housing unit, which means they should not have been able to interact with one another.

What's more concerning is the fact the two tested positive for marijuana. According to limo now everyone in the SHU is being tested.

The Special Housing Unit should sound familiar – last year an inmate was caught on video giving an officer a foot massage. The same officer was also caught on camera asleep with an inmate nearby looking at a cell phone.

As for these latest incidents limo on Tuesday was not able to provide information as to how many officers were on duty during the time of the stabbing.

    Government wants full payment from Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho

    It's a $750 wedding ring, but its significance and meaning, priceless. While Ray Charles Tedtaotao Camacho is serving life behind bars, the government argues he's not being held fully accountable for his crimes. Five years ago, Camacho kidnapped and raped Monique Baza after she made a quick run to the bakery for bread. Though it's a minimal amount for the ring that was never recovered, defense has motioned to waive restitution.  The government, in its response this week, argued ...More >>
