THE Attorney General’s Office on Wednesday asked the Superior Court to drop the charges against a man accused of selling methamphetamine or “ice” on Saipan.

Assistant Attorney General Chester Hinds filed a motion to dismiss the case against Huaishu Wang, but without prejudice — meaning it can be refiled.

Hinds told Variety that the case is not over, and that he just needs additional time.

Wang, 38, was charged with trafficking and possession of an illegal substance.

Superior Court Associate Judge Teresa Kim-Tenorio signed the warrant for Wang’s arrest and set a $100,000 cash bail for his release.

After a traffic stop, Wang was identified by Drug Enforcement Task Force agents as the person who  met  with the informant and was with another suspected dealer in a “buy-walk” operation conducted on Dec. 19, 2019.

In that DETF operation, $1,200 worth of ice was purchased by an informant from a dealer named “Mindy” who had met Wang inside a vehicle before the controlled drug buy-walk operation.

According to court information, Wang was previously arrested and then released under his own recognizance in January 2020 provided that he would cooperate with and provide assistance to law enforcement in ongoing investigations.

The warrant for his arrest was reissued after he failed to provide substantial assistance to law enforcement.
