Multiple People Arrested in Drug Bust

Posted: Updated:

A traffic pullover in Mangilao leads to a major drug bust, more than a half million dollars in cash and multiple arrest. The investigation all started on Halloween when officers assigned to the Guam Police Department’s Mandana Drug Task Force and DEA agents assisted Department of Agriculture conservation officers with a traffic stop at the Marbo Cave area. Law enforcement found 7 ounces of crystal methamphetamines, almost $20,000 in cash, and firearms. 39-year-old David Cepeda Torres was booked and confined

 His arrest then led to the execution of two search warrants at a home in Mongmong and Agana Heights. In Mongmong, GPD and DEA discovered more drugs and firearms. 

Booked and confined were:

- 31-year-old Kevin James Camacho
- 42-year-old Jason Camacho Quitugua
- 51-year-old Jeffery Cepeda Camacho 
- 33-year-old Justin Vincent Camacho 

When law enforcement executed their second search warrant at the home in Agana Heights they seized 4.4oz of crystal methamphetamines, 14 grams of cocaine, 30 grams of marijuana and over $15,000 in cash. 

Police spokesperson Paul Tapao says during the course of that investigation they learned that 44-year-old Cynthia Leon Guerrero Paulino was storing drug proceeds in a safety deposit box at Coast 360 in Maite. When a search warrant was executed  at the bank on Saturday, investigators seized over $510,000 in cash and other assets believed to be obtained from the sale of drugs. Paulino was booked and confined.
