The Guam Police Department seized nearly 12 grams of methamphetamine during a traffic stop early Saturday morning.
Police pulled over Zeroes Jabidando Viva as he was driving along North Luisa Street in Tumon.
According to court documents, a search of the vehicle yielded the discovery of a black pouch tucked underneath the front passenger seat.
While Viva consented to the search, police say he denied ownership of the pouch which contained the meth, a digital scale, a large plastic straw sealed on one end and other meth paraphernalia.
As Viva was transported to Dededo Precinct, officers say he received a text message with the notification banner asking Viva if “he had half a zip.”
According to authorities, a “zip” is the street term for an ounce of methamphetamine.
Along with the drugs, police also seized Viva’s phone and personal belongings which included $1,784.00, largely in hundred dollar bills.
He was charged in the Superior Court of Guam with possession with the intent to deliver a scheduled two controlled substance as a 1st-degree felony and possession of a schedule two controlled substance as a 3rd-degree felony.
He was booked and confined.
