A Guam Customs and Quarantine Officer III, who has been with the agency for 25-years has been placed on administrative leave. 

As KUAM reported, 49-year old Eddie Leon Guerrero Nangauta was charged with family violence as a misdemeanor and terrorizing as a third-degree felony after he allegedly threatened to kill a woman known to him.

Customs Spokesperson Alana Chargualaf-Afaisen confirmed they are aware of the recent arrest and the accusations against him.

An internal affairs investigation has been launched and Nangauta's agency-issued firearm has been relinquished to Guam Customs.

It was on May 8, Guam police responded to a Yigo home after a woman alleged she got threatening messages from Nangauta on WhatsApp.

Nangauta allegedly texted, “I need to hurt you” and “if you call the cops, I’ll kill you and your family.”

He was released on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond and ordered to stay away from his accuser.
