Guam traffic stops lead to drug arrests

HAGÅTÑA (The Guam Daily Post) — Routine traffic stops led to the discovery of illegal drugs in separate instances earlier this week.

On Jan. 16, Brandon Michael Taisacan was arrested and charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and possession of a Schedule I controlled substance.

Taisacan was pulled over along Marine Corps Drive in Asan after speeding, according to court documents.

A police officer noted that Taisacan seemed “very nervous and shaking,” according to the magistrate’s complaint.

The defendant also placed his hands inside his shorts pockets, police said.

Police saw a green straw containing a white powdery substance. The white substance tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine, the court document states.

Separate case

In a separate case the next day, Adrian Cecil Tyquiengco was also arrested after being pulled over for a traffic violation.

During the stop, court documents state police saw that Tyquiengco was “fidgety” and “sweating profusely.”

As Tyquiengco was searched, he produced from his front pocket a glass pipe, along with two clear bags containing a white crystalline substance.

Additionally, the defendant indicated he had another “ice pipe” in the vehicle’s driver-side door panel. A field test showed a presumptive positive result for meth.

Tyquiengco was charged with one count of possession of a Schedule II controlled substance.
