Guam - Jesse John Peredo Baza faces between 5 and 40 years behind bars and up to $2,000,000 in fines. He entered into a plea agreement, pleading guilty to attempted possession with the intent to distribute more than 5 grams of methamphetamine hydrochloride.
According to court documents, in July 2006 Customs drug detector dogs alerted to a package and officers found 46 grams of the drug ice inside. Baza and others went to the Tamuning Post Office and picked up the package.
A hearing is scheduled for February 5 in the U.S. District Court of Guam.
