Drug accused cleared to travel for MMA fight | Guam News
A local mixed martial arts fighter accused of attempting to smuggle 5 pounds of methamphetamine into Guam has secured his request to travel off the island.
Defendant Ricky Camp appeared before Guam Superior Court trial judge Jonathan Quan on Monday.
Defense attorney Clyde Lemons told court his client would have left from July 21 to August 5.
It was told in court that Camp would be in pre-fight training in Phoenix, Arizona, before fighting at an event in Belton, Texas.
The prosecution did not oppose the request, and adult probation services told the court that the accused had committed no violation.
The judge ordered Camp to be tested for drugs and alcohol before the trip, and again upon his return. He was also ordered to provide a final itinerary and contact details for probation.
Camp has since pleaded not guilty to the charges of importing a Schedule II controlled substance as a first degree felony, 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.
He was arrested in November 2019 after U.S. postal and customs services detected drugs in a package coming from Las Vegas.
Officers opened the package and discovered it contained about 2,282 grams, or about 5 pounds, of methamphetamine, court documents show.
According to Guam Daily Post records, it was previously said in court that some of the evidence related to his arrest was part of an ongoing federal investigation. While he awaits his trial in the local case, no charges have been filed against him in Guam District Court.
