During a hearing this morning, Quiana Manibusan’s legal counsel requested for her bail to be reduced in half—from $20K to $10K.

Guam – Last month, a  discovery of a suspicious package later determined to be containing methamphetamine was found in the men’s restroom at the Guam Memorial Hospital.  Court documents later revealed that the package was intended to be picked up by an inmate during medical transport.
In the aftermath, five individuals were accused of attempting to smuggle contraband into the Department of Corrections through the Guam Memorial Hospital.
Those accused have been identified as Quiana Manibusan, Corina Lynn Tedtaotao, Paul Lynwood Johnson and two DOC inmates: Raymond Torres Tedtaotao and Frank Edward Pangelinan.
During a hearing this morning, Manibusan’s legal counsel requested for her bail to be reduced from $20,000 to $10,000.  Judge Vern Perez noted that he was inclined to allow the reduction provided that once bail is met, certain conditions are followed as well.
Manibusan was indicted alongside her four-codefendants on charges of conspiracy to promote prison contraband as a second degree felony.
Meanwhile, Corina Tedtaotao was additionally charged with possession of a schedule two controlled substance. Johnson was also indicted on special allegation of felony committed while on pre-trial release and possession of a firearm without a firearm ID.  Inmates Raymond Torres Tedtaotao and Frank Edward Pangelinan, were indicted on charges of promotion of major prison contraband. Raymond Tedtaotao was also charged with possession of a scheduled two controlled substance.
The next hearing is scheduled for November 27 at 9:30am in the Superior Court of Guam.
