Kenneth L. Mclain And Karl Kaii Baker Sentenced For Conspiracy To Distribute Methamphetamine

ALICIA A.G. LIMTIACO, United States Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, announced that Defendants Kenneth L. McLain, age 32, and Karl Kaii Baker, age 34, were sentenced today in the United States District Court, for Conspiracy to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine (ice). McLain was sentenced to 108 months in prison, five years supervised release upon his release from prison and a $500 fine. Baker was sentenced to a term of 78 months in prison and five years supervised release. Additionally, the Court recommended to the Bureau of Prisons that McLain and Baker be placed in a drug rehabilitation program in a California.

In September 2011, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) intercepted a package in the mail containing methamphetamine. A search of the package revealed methamphetamine; the sender attempted to cover the odor emitted by the drug. Federal and local law enforcement conducted a controlled delivery of the package to McLain and Baker, who were subsequently arrested.

U.S. Attorney Limtiaco commends the hard work and efforts of the USPIS, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations, Guam Customs and Quarantine, Guam Police Department and the Guam Superior Court Probation office for their participation and assistance in this investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Clyde Lemons prosecuted the case.
