For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Districts of Guam & the Northern Mariana Islands

          SHAWN N. ANDERSON, Acting United States Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands (NMI), announced that defendant JOSHUA J.C. ULLOA, age 40, from Barrigada, Guam, was sentenced in the District Court of Guam to a 110-month term of imprisonment for Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine.  The Court also ordered an additional 24 months imprisonment for violating terms of supervised release in a separate federal case.  The 24-month sentence will be served consecutive to the 110 months for a total of 11 years in prison.   The Court also ordered ULLOA to serve three years of supervised release following his terms of imprisonment.  Additionally, defendants convicted of a federal drug offense may no longer qualify for certain federal benefits.

          On March 13, 2017, defendant ULLOA was charged with Conspiracy to Possess with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, in violation of 21 U.S.C. §§ 846 and 841(a)(1).  During July 2016, ULLOA received a mail package that had contained approximately 1,300 grams of methamphetamine.  ULLOA was confronted by federal agents at his residence and gave the agents the package.  A search of the residence revealed other evidence, including $30,920 in U.S. currency.  The money was seized as proceeds of drug trafficking activity and administratively forfeited to the United States.  ULLOA engaged in this conduct while serving a term of supervised release for a prior federal conviction in Guam.  Further investigation revealed that ULLOA conspired with others to distribute drugs.  His prosecution was also linked to other co-conspirators operating out of the Guam Department of Corrections prison facility.

          The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Postal Service Inspector and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  The case was prosecuted by Frederick A. Black and Rosetta San Nicolas, Assistant U.S. Attorneys.
