Major drug case could head back to California

Posted: Updated:

The U.S. District Court for the Central District of California is taking a couple tried twice on Guam for drugs back to court.

The California district indicted Raymond Martinez and Juanita Moser on charges of possession with intent to distribute meth, aiding and abetting.

Court documents state Martinez was arrested on Guam today.

The pair stood accused of attempting to smuggle eight pounds of meth from California to Guam back in 2015. The case has since resulted in two mistrials following hung juries.

A motion hearing for the couple is set for Jan. 15 in the District Court of Guam. Federal prosecutors filed a motion to dismiss the case without prejudice, as they have now decided to prosecute it where the alleged incident took place - in California.
