Man enters plea agreement for meth conspiracy
Guam - One of three defendants charged in a drug conspiracy case has entered into a plea deal with the federal government. Karl Kaai Baker pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute more than 50 grams of crystal methamphetamine. Baker was recently indicted with Kenneth Leroy McLain and Julia Heacock.
In April of this year, federal authorities seized a package addressed to an individual in California that listed McLain as the sender. The parcel contained $35,000 in cash. On September 9, authorities intercepted a package sent from California to Guam that contained more than 300 grams of the drug Ice. According to the plea agreement, Baker and McLain went to pick up the package at the post office where they were apprehended.
The 33-year-old admitted that he mailed $20,000 on behalf of McLain's associates to purchase Ice to be sold on Guam and agreed to cooperate with authorities. His co-defendants meanwhile pleaded not guilty and are scheduled to go to trial on December first.
All three have been released from custody.
