DEA operation forces Astumbo school into lockdown

Posted: Updated:

A drug enforcement operation in Dededo forced a local middle school to go on lockdown around 8:45 this morning. The DEA could only confirm its part of an ongoing federal investigation. Still, no word if any drugs were found at the home or if any arrests have been made.

Guam DOE spokesperson Isa Baza says the lockdown procedure at Astumbo Middle School was done out of an abundance of caution and in response to the raid happening near the school.

Administrators worked with the Guam Police Department to ensure it was safe before the all clear was given around 9 a.m.
