New Customs director backs post office search resolution

Posted: Updated:

The newly appointed director of Guam Customs and Quarantine, Ike Peredo, said he supports the newly introduced resolution that would authorize Guam Customs to search for drugs on U.S. Postal service premises.

"I can safely say we have a problem with drugs coming through the postal system," he said. "I am hoping the dialogue between our government and the federal government will find a win-win situation for us here to prevent further importation of illicit drugs."

The resolution was forwarded to Congressman Mike San Nicolas who has deferred the matter. Sen. James Moylan, a co-sponsor of the resolution, also requested the governor use her authority to establish an MOU between Guam Customs and USPS. Adelup is currently reviewing the request.
