According to GPD spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao, officers discovered suspected drug paraphernalia, suspected methamphetamine, assorted prescription pills, US currency, firearms and an unknown white powdery substance.

Out of an abundance of caution, Tapao said detectives ceased the operations and immediately evacuated all personnel and individuals located within the apartment complex.

The Guam Fire Department’s Hazardous Response Team was immediately activated to assist the Guam Police Department with evidence collection.

According to Tapao, the scene was deemed safe shortly after 11:30 pm.

Through the course of the investigation, four men were detained and transported to GPD
Headquarters for interview and processing.

Detectives later arrested the following individuals:

-31-year-old Brandon Rufus Chandler, for: Illegal Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance
-26-year-old Pierson Key Cruz, for: Illegal Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance
-21-year-old Uriah Cruz Kuper, for: Illegal Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance
-29-year-old Michael Gregory Rosal Jr, for: Illegal Possession of Schedule II Controlled Substance

All four men were booked and confined at the Department of Corrections.

Although this case has been forwarded to the Office of the Attorney General for prosecution, Tapao said this case is ongoing as detectives continue to conduct additional interviews and pending test results for the unknown white powdery substance.
