Guam – Two men delivering supplies to the Department of Corrections kitchen in Mangilao have been arrested on charges of trying to smuggle contraband into the prison.
DOC Spokesman Lt. Antone Aguon tells PNC News that Promise Airam and Herickson Ruben arrived at the prison’s service gate yesterday driving a JJQ vehicle to make a scheduled delivery to the prison galley.
As required, a search was conducted of the vehicle and the 2 men.
“During the course of the search,” states Lt. Aguon, “the officer discovered tobacco products and a substance believe to be ‘SPICE’.”
DOC Officers arrested both Airam and Ruben. They have been confined on charges of promoting prison contraband and possession of a Schedule I substance with intent to distribute.
PNC News spoke with JJQ President Cong Lin Wu who told us that Airam is his warehouse manager. But Ruben is not a full time employee and was only hired part time to help unload containers. Neither man, said Wu, delivers supplies to the prison on a regular basis, “Its not their job,” he said.
He said the pair was only involved in yesterday’s delivery because someone had called in sick.
