A man arrested after Guam police found drugs hidden in a chicken coop in Dededo has been indicted by a Superior Court of Guam grand jury.

Leyton Borja, 48, was indicted on charges of 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.

On Sept. 4, police executed a search warrant at a home along Batulo Road in Dededo based on intelligence that the suspect allegedly had been distributing methamphetamine out of his residence.

Police had received information that methamphetamine was located in the area around where Borja kept his fighting roosters and that Borja would conceal methamphetamine inside latex gloves, according to court documents.

Authorities confiscated two grams of methamphetamine near a chicken coop as well as two boxes of latex gloves, a digital scale, two cellphones and an SD card.

Borja was found slouching down with his back against a tree attempting to conceal himself with vegetation in the jungle area behind the home, court documents state.
