Guam – An unknown white substance was discovered during a shakedown at the Department of Corrections on Monday.
The substance described as white and powdery was discovered during a shakedown of Post 7, the temporary maximum security unit at the Department of Corrections.
DOC Director Tony Lamorena states that the unknown substance was hidden in a water cooler in the common area of the unit and was about a gram it the size of a quarter.
He shares that the substance was turned over to GPD for testing and declined to state whether it was methamphetamine or cocaine.
Lamorena states that a further shakedown of Post 7 did not reveal any other contraband.
Because of this he says there is a possibility that it was hidden there prior to the maximum security inmates moving into the unit and was not found until Monday evening.
The case is under investigation.
