Trial in Martinez drug case scheduled for December


Raymond Martinez and Juanita Moser were pulled over in Torrance, California and authorities allege they found over 8 pounds of crystal meth inside their vehicle.

Guam – Trial has been scheduled for a married couple who authorities say was busted with crystal meth in California that was supposed to be shipped to Guam through luxury cars.

Chief District Court Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood set trial for December 5, after granting two motions to continue trial, effectively pausing the speedy trial clock.

In June 2015, police in Torrance, California pulled over husband and wife Raymond Martinez and Juanita Marie Moser where they allegedly found over 8 pounds of crystal meth concealed inside of buckets in the car.

The couple’s defense had filed several motions in an attempt to prevent suppress certain evidence. They believe that the Torrance Police Department had no probable cause to pull them over, much less search their vehicle.

But federal authorities say the evidence they found proves that the couple was involved in a bigger scheme to smuggle ice into Guam by using luxury vehicles as a sort of drug mule.

Jury selection and trial is scheduled for December 5 at 10 am.
