Feds expected to present more evidence against Yona mayor
Before there was Brenda, there was Vickilynn Teregeyo. According to a notice filed in the criminal case involving Yona Mayor Jesse Blas, the feds plan to present other evidence of alleged prior criminal acts.
Blas was indicted in September for allegedly allowing a confidential informant identified as Brenda to pay for U.S. Postal Service cluster boxes outside his office to smuggle in drugs.
According to court documents filed in the District Court today, before Brenda, the feds allege the mayor gave keys to a cluster box to Teregeyo.
Court documents state Teregeyo was supposed to order methamphetamine from her contacts in the mainland and then sell the meth and give Blas a share of the profits. According to Teregeyo, Blas provided access to the cluster box units to other drug traffickers.
Teregeyo has been identified as the initial complainant in the Blas indictment. Blas was her former third party custodian in a case she had before the Superior Court. She is now in Saipan.
The mayor has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Last week District Court of Guam Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood ordered that Blas be detained pending his trial scheduled for Dec. 3.
