Drug conspiracy revealed in Guam plea deal

HAGÅTÑA (The Guam Daily Post) —  A plea agreement was unsealed in the District Court of Guam revealing a conspiracy to distribute large quantities of crystal methamphetamine through the U.S. Postal Service.

Vincent Q. Lujan, 43, was indicted on Aug. 15 for conspiring to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine hydrochloride.

The indictment was sealed, or kept from the public, and Lujan was arrested the following day.

According to the plea agreement filed last week, Lujan participated in a conspiracy between July 2017 and August of this year to distribute methamphetamine with a 99 percent purity level.

A package was intercepted in the mail, sent from Tacoma, Washington, to Guam, via the U.S. Postal Service. The parcel weighed 111.2 grams.

Lujan admitted to authorities that he had been expecting a couple of ounces of methamphetamine at an agreed price of $5,000 an ounce, court documents state.

The defendant was scheduled to formally change his plea to guilty before the District Court on Friday and continues his cooperation with authorities.
