Guam – The Department of Corrections is currently on lockdown as a raid and search is executed on the Mangilao compound.

Guam Police Department Spokesman Officer AJ Balajadia confirmed that GPD and DOC are conducting a joint investigation at the facility. Balajadia, however, could not release further details as it may jeopardize the investigation.

Balajadia says the chief of police and the DOC director will be calling a press conference “once the investigation is at a stage that will allow the releasing of details in this investigation.”

The raid follows recent news of increased contraband findings at the facility, the discovery of a hole in a fence and a drone that was found inside the facility.
