Guam Police Department officers were patrolling NCS, Dededo area when they observed a vehicle with an expired registration sticker and a missing rear window covered with a black opaque piece of plastic.

Officers pulled over the vehicle and noticed Josh David in the back seat making movements that became more observable when David opened his door. Court documents state it was then that officers spotted a black pouch underneath the front driver's seat. The driver consented to a search of the vehicle and when officers opened the pouch, they found a modified glass pipe with suspected meth residue.

A check of the pouch that was on David, revealed a small plastic bag with suspected meth. Field tests resulted in presumptive positive for meth. David would later admit the pipe belonged to him. He was charged with possession of a scheduled II controlled substance.
