Federal authorities have been busy as four cases filed in the District Court of Guam all involve mail parcels being intercepted.
Each case has been filed in federal court under seal indicating that investigations may be ongoing. At this time, what the packages contained has not been disclosed but what is known is where they were headed.
The first parcel is identified as a First Class Letter bearing the address of Pedro Meno in Inarajan. The second parcel is a US priority package headed to a Michelle Asai in Tumon. The third package is an express mailed parcel with the intended recipient identified as Arman Olalai. This package was to be sent to a postal box unit at the Barrigada Post Office. The last package intercepted by authorities was headed to a Dededo home with the recipient identified as Jesse Babauta.
Federal authorities have previously stated in court documents that the intended recipients named on packages such as these are often aliases and while the sender’s addresses have not been disclosed, packages intercepted are often from identified “sender states.”
Guam Customs and Quarantine has also gone on record to state that the postal system is the primary avenue used to smuggle drugs into the island.
