HAGÅTÑA (The Guam Daily Post) —  A 41-year-old man who police said traded methamphetamine for power tools could face five to 20 years in prison if convicted on the charges against him.

William Elm

William Elm is charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance with intent to deliver as a first-degree felony and possession of a Schedule II controlled substance as a third-degree felony. According to the Office of the Attorney General of Guam, the charges can carry a prison sentence of anywhere between five and 20 years.

On Feb. 26, Guam Police Department officers were interviewing an unidentified person referred to in the magistrate’s complaint as “a source of information.”

According to the magistrate’s document, which was filed with the Superior Court of Guam, the source told police that he had traded some power tools for drugs with a man named “B.J. Elm,” identified in documents as William Elm.

Based on this information, police obtained a search warrant for Elm’s home. During the search, officers said they discovered two power tools of the brand that the source had said he traded with Elm. Officers also found 6.5 grams of meth in the home, documents state.

“During his interview, the defendant acknowledged that the drugs were his and stated that he uses and sells methamphetamine,” documents state.
