Judge Orders More Than $270K in Forfeiture in Sardoma Drug Case


Mateo Sardoma Jr. is currently serving an 11 year sentence in federal prison.

Guam – Chief District Court Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood has issued a final order of forfeiture and restitution worth more than $270,000 dollars in the Mateo Sardoma drug ring case.


Sardoma was once labeled as a drug king pin after he and nine others were arrested in one of the largest drug busts in the last decade.

All 10 defendants pleaded guilty in the drug scheme but Sardoma, his girlfriend Maria Cristina Edrosa and his right hand man Rudy Sablan were given longer sentences since they were considered to be at the top of the drug conspiracy.

Sardoma and Edrosa have been ordered to pay $18,000 in restitution and forfeit of $40,000 and two vehicles. They were also imposed a money judgment of $200,000.

Sardoma and Sablan are both currently serving  11 years each, while Edrosa is serving a sentence of six years. You can read the federal judge’s final order by clicking on the file below.
