A man boarding an airplane to Saipan was sniffed out by a drug detection K-9 dog resulting in the discovery of methamphetamine hidden in his bag.

Guam Customs Officers say that Benito Sablan Aguon was on the jetway on Dec. 4 getting ready to board the morning flight to Saipan when a drug detector dog alerted officers to Aguon.

The complaint states that a search of Aguon’s bag revealed an envelope containing two clear vacuum-sealed plastic bags containing methamphetamine.

Officers also recovered six “Icy Hot” packages, each containing a clear vacuum-sealed plastic bag with methamphetamine. In total, 231 gross grams of meth were seized.

Aguon was charged with attempted exportation of a schedule two controlled substance; attempted possession aboard an aircraft departing Guam; and possession of a schedule two controlled substance. He was booked and confined.
