Guam – Two men implicated in the largest cocaine bust in GPD history are now facing federal charges.
Robert Afaisen and his cousin, Jimmy Afaisen, were both indicted in the District Court of Guam last week. Initially, the case was sealed, but the case was made public yesterday.
Robert Afaisen was the man dubbed the kingpin and supplier in the largest cocaine bust in Department history. Police say they discovered 35 pounds of cocaine in his home–cocaine Afaisen claims he found washed ashore on his beachfront property last May. But instead of turning the discovery over to authorities, he allegedly began dealing it out of his home and supplying his acquaintances with drugs for further distribution.
While federal court documents provided little in the way of information, a Superior Court of Guam complaint stated that, in total, the cocaine from Afaisen wound up in the hands of nine other individuals identified as Jonathan Manglona, George Flores, John Tainatongo, Monica Quinata, Carl Aguon, Nicholas Frederick, Danby Rojas, Jimmy Afaisen and Randall Fulcher Jr.
In Federal court, Robert and Jimmy face charges of possession of five or more grams of cocaine hydrochloride with the intent to distribute and a notice of forfeiture.
