Cop arrested on ‘ice’ charges


Agents of the Attorney General’s Investigation Division arrested on Friday night a police officer in connection with alleged trafficking of methamphetamine or “ice.”

Sources disclosed that AGID agents served the arrest warrant on Police Officer 1 Carl Tudela in San Antonio at about 7pm to 8pm.

Sources said Tudela is assigned to the Department of Public Safety’s patrol section.

Department of Public Safety Commissioner James Deleon Guerrero said it was a joint DPS-AGID operation and that he will issue a statement today, Monday.

Tudela’s bail hearing is expected to be held today in Superior Court.

Saipan Tribune learned that the same officer was also implicated in an “ice”-related case before along with then-police officer Victor Val Hocog and another police officer who was subsequently dismissed from DPS.
