The investigation further revealed that CAMACHO arranged to have the drugs sent to her in Guam from Bremerton, Washington.

          The U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation. The case was prosecuted by Rosetta San Nicolas, Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Guam.
