Last year, two search warrants were executed, and suspected methamphetamine and paraphernalia were found by the Guam Police Department, leading to the eventual arrest of Ricky Gene Acfalle Quitugua, 35.

He's been charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance with the intent to deliver as a first-degree felony, and possession of a Schedule II controlled substance as a third-degree felony, documents state.

The first warrant was executed early in 2018, following a March 15, 2018 tip that drugs were being sold out of a Harmon condo. When officers went to the condo, Quitugua jumped off the balcony and fled, according to Superior Court of Guam documents.

Police allegedly found 2 grams of suspected methamphetamine, a digital scale, and more than $1,000 in cash. In a Mazda truck that had been parked outside of the condo, police found 3 grams of suspected meth and another digital scale, documents state. Field tests of the drugs resulted presumptive positive for methamphetamine.

A person found at the condo, Mika Takano, allegedly admitted that the suspected meth found in the truck belonged to her and the defendant. Takano faces charges along with a third person who wasn’t named in the complaint.

On Dec. 31 at 1 p.m., while assisting Guam marshals with a warrant of arrest at a Dededo home, police allegedly found a glasses case containing suspected methamphetamine and paraphernalia, documents state.

The defendant was only recently arrested for the incidents associated with these police reports, documents state.
