Guam - Be warned: if you're sending or receiving drugs via mail, you will be prosecuted. That's the message on a newly released US Postal Inspection poster to be placed on various post offices locally.

Inspector in charge at the US Postal Inspection Service Rafael Nunez says Operation Thin Ice has been successful thanks to stronger enforcement efforts, more narcotics inspectors and analysts, and community partnerships.

"We've collaborated with Guam Customs to develop a poster to number one show the community and make them aware that drug abuse is bad and very dangerous and destroys families and communities. If you get involved the law enforcement community will go after you and we will prosecute you," he said.

Nunez also says there are now two postal inspectors on Guam working full-time.

For those who are convicted, the federal offense could land you up to 20 years behind bars.
