Guam – Four individuals implicated in the largest cocaine seizure in GPD’s history have asserted their innocence.
A total of ten people were indicted by a grand jury on charges related to possession and distribution of a scheduled two controlled substance following the seizure of more than 35 pounds of cocaine in recent weeks.
Of those ten, four pleaded not guilty to the charges, they are the “King pin” Robert Afaisen, his neighbor John Tainatongo, Jonathan Manglona and Monica Quinata.
Afaisen told police that he allegedly found the 35 pounds of cocaine washed ashore on his beach front property, but instead of reporting it to authorities he began giving it to his acquaintances.
According to court documents, Afaisen was released on a $100,000.00 personal recognizance bond under the condition that he reside with his daughter and not contact any of the co-defendants.
An arraignment hearing is set for June 11th for the remaining co-defendants, Randall Fulcher, Jimmy Afaisen, Nicohlas Frederick, Carl Aguon, Danby Rojas and Geroge Flores.
