Two maximum security inmates found with contraband


One of the inmates was also arrested for the same reasons earlier this month.

Guam – The Department of Corrections’ efforts to clean house appears to be working as two inmates in Post 6 were found with more contraband in their cells. For one of the men, this is the second time this month.

“Two cell phones, a SIM card and miscellaneous homemade drug paraphernalia were found in a shakedown of two cells in the Post 6 housing unit,” said DOC Deputy Director Kate Baltazar.

The shakedown was conducted at 5:30 in the evening, just hours after local media was invited into the prison to witness the execution of a K9 sweep of the facility.

According to Guam Police Department Spokesperson AJ Balajadia, a search of  Edward Joseph San Agustin’s prison cell revealed two mobile phones.

San Agustin was arrested for promoting major prison contraband.

In addition, a search of Bruno Frankie Simmons’ cell uncovered a SIM card, razor blade, black micro adapter, empty straws with white residue suspected to be crystal methamphetamine, white Samsung Galaxy S4 back cover, make shift pipes and metal plates. Earlier this month, Simmons was arrested during another shakedown which occurred on September 5, 2017.

Simmons was arrested for promoting major prison contraband and illegal possession of a scheduled two controlled substance.

Both men were booked and re-confined.
