Today, SHAWN N. ANDERSON, Acting United States Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, announced that defendant GEORGE M. BAMBA, II, age 38 from Agana Heights, was sentenced in District Court to a 37-month term of imprisonment, to be followed by five years of supervised release. The Court also ordered BAMBA to pay a mandatory $100 assessment fee. In addition, defendants who are convicted of a federal drug offense may no longer qualify for certain federal benefits.
November 5, 2015, BAMBA waived Indictment and entered a guilty plea to an Information charging him with Conspiracy to Distribute 50 Grams or More of Methamphetamine, in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§ 846, 841(a)(1) and (b)(1)(A)(viii). The investigation revealed that BAMBA, and other individuals, agreed to use the mail system to distribute large quantities of methamphetamine on Guam. October 5, 2015, law enforcement agents seized a U.S. Postal Service package that concealed over 95 grams of methamphetamine that was 100% pure. BAMBA arranged to have the drugs sent to him in Guam from Las Vegas, Nevada.
The U.S. Postal Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration conducted the investigation, with assistance by the Guam Superior Court Probation Office, Guam Customs and Quarantine Agency, and the Guam Police Department. The case was prosecuted by Clyde Lemons, Jr., and Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Guam.
