HAGÅTÑA, Guam (Pacific Daily News, Nov. 30, 2016) – A federal grand jury on Wednesday returned a true bill, indicting a man arrested in connection with 18 pounds of mailed methamphetamine.

Vincent Raymond Rios now faces two counts of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and a charge of attempted possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Rios was arrested after he picked up a large package that contained about 18 pounds of methamphetamine on Nov. 16, court documents state.

The package was sent from Washington state to Guam, court documents state. After Rios was arrested, authorities searched his car and found another 199 gross grams of methamphetamine and a large amount of cash hidden in the engine compartment, documents state.

In Rios’ hotel room, federal authorities found postal forms and receipts with the tracking number of the package that contained the drugs, court documents state.

If Rios is convicted of any of the charges in the indictment, he could be forced to give up more than $1 million seized from his bank account and deposit boxes, his homes, five vehicles and a motorcycle, according to the indictment.

Prosecuting attorney Rosetta San Nicolas said at a detention hearing this week that because of his prior convictions and because of the large amount of drugs, Rios could be sentenced to life in prison.

Rios was found guilty of three drug offenses in the Superior Court of Guam and he is a flight risk, according to San Nicolas.

The drugs in the package are worth an estimated $4 million and are likely to be a pure substance, San Nicolas said.

Rios retained attorney David Lujan to represent him in this case. He is scheduled to appear in court for an arraignment Friday.
