Comments Off on Joaquin Cruz Reyes, aka “Kin”, 59, child support division employee at the Office of the Attorney General, and Jezebel Rhea Quinata, 28, charged in Mangilao prison Methamphetamine case

A man and woman were charged in local court Tuesday for allegedly working together to bring crystal methamphetamine to an inmate at the Department of Corrections main facility, in Mangilao.

Joaquin Cruz Reyes, aka “Kin”, 59, who works for the child support division at the Office of the Attorney General, was charged for possession of a Schedule II controlled substance with intent to deliver as a first-degree felony, promotion of a major prison contraband and conspiracy to promote major prison contraband as second-degree felonies and possession of a Schedule II controlled substance as a third-degree felony.

Jezebel Rhea Quinata, 28, was charged with conspiracy to promote major prison contraband.

According to a magistrate’s complaint, police were called to the Mangilao facility at 9:30 a.m. Monday after prison personnel said Reyes, who had been visiting inmate Yolanda Louise Megofna, was caught trying to pass her a package in a visitation room.

The package was described as two small plastic bags, each containing a crystalline substance wrapped in black electrical tape, the complaint states. The substance tested positive for amphetamines.

The total gross weight of the two bags was 1.5 grams, the complaint states.

Reyes allegedly told authorities he had been delivering packages to Megofna for some time, and assumed they contained tobacco. He said he picked up the packages from a woman named Becky, who lives in Barrigada, who paid him several hundred dollars per package, the complaint states. He said he concealed the package in his crotch to avoid detection during a pat down.

Police executed a search warrant at the Barrigada residence, where they found Quinata, who also goes by the name “Becky,” documents state.

Quinata recently was released from prison and was in contact with Megofna while incarcerated, the complaint states.

She allegedly told police that Megofna would contact her and have her provide drugs to Reyes deliver to her in prison.

News files state Megofna was arrested in 2013, and again in 2014, in connection with burglarizing a vehicle. She also was charged with criminal mischief and fraudulent use of a credit card in connection with the 2014 arrest.

Quinata is a registered sex offender. News files state she was indicted in 2009 for criminal sexual conduct for allegedly using force to engage in sex acts with a 16-year-old girl.
