Woman charged with intent to distribute meth from US to Guam

HAGÅTÑA (The Guam Daily Post) — A drug-detection canine alerted authorities to more than 50 grams of methamphetamine that was hidden inside a magazine that was mailed to Guam from Washington state.

Last Thursday, a package sent to a Dededo post office box drew the attention of the U.S. Postal Inspector who called in Guam Customs and Quarantine’s drug-detection canine unit.

The dog alerted officers to the presence of narcotics in the package, according to a complaint filed in the District Court of Guam on Tuesday.

On Friday the inspector obtained a federal search warrant for the package that contained an envelope containing a magazine with more than 50 grams of the drug “ice” hidden inside, court documents state.

On Monday, federal and local law enforcement conducted a controlled-delivery operation at the Dededo post office.

Dolores Diana B.G. Westfall arrived with a second individual and entered the Dededo post office and picked up the package, the complaint states.

Westfall and the unnamed individual were detained and transported to the Drug Enforcement Administration office where authorities said she confessed to having knowledge that the package contained methamphetamine and that she was to deliver it to an individual in Agat.

Court documents state that Westfall confessed that she participated in another methamphetamine delivery in June and delivered it to an individual who was waiting for her at the Agat Post Office and was paid at least one gram of methamphetamine for the delivery.

Additionally she admitted to authorities that she knew the methamphetamine was to be distributed to others in Guam.

Westfall was charged with attempted possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 15.
