Drug trafficking fugitive returns to Guam in federal custody
by Mindy Aguon
GUAM - A woman who has been on the run from authorities for months is now in federal custody on Guam. Bertha Moore turned herself in to the U.S. Embassy in the Philippines several weeks ago.
Moore is charged in a drug trafficking conspiracy case with Eric and Macrina Tedtaotao. The couple's trial was delayed after the government learned that Moore had turned herself in. The three are accused of smuggling large quantities of crystal methamphetamine from the Philippines to Guam. Moore was brought back to Guam and is currently in federal custody awaiting a hearing in the District Court. There's been no trial date set and no indication yet if Moore will cooperate with authorities.
