Bad credit card leads to drug bust

Posted: Updated:

A stolen credit card leads to a woman "on the run" and drugs inside a hotel room.

On May 8, Police were called to the Royal Orchid in Tumon where William John Pinaula is accused of using a credit card that did not belong to him.

He tried to pay off a room balance with the card used to hold a reservation but came up short. According to court documents, he later returned with Carina Lyn Cruz Barnes to complete the payment.

Police went to the room and found Barnes inside. As hotel staff cleaned up the room, they found several suspected meth and other paraphernalia. She told police she was staying in the room because she was "on the run" after violating her probation and missing her court date on her active family violence and child abuse case.

Pinaula was recently released on pretrial house arrest under the condition he stays away from drugs.

Barnes was charged with possession of a schedule II substance and willful failure to appear in court while Pinaula was charged with identity theft and possession of a schedule II controlled substance both in the commission of a felony while on felony release.
