A customs officer was being investigated for possession of sidearm and ammunition after he was reported post mid-night to the authorities for drunk and aggressive behavior at a residence in Medalaii.

Artin Hideyos , 48, was allegedly found to be in a possession of sidearm and ammunition when authorities responded at 1:37 a.m. but he wasn’t arrested at the time.

On the same night at 3 am, Customs Officer Hideyos allegedly assaulted a woman in the parking lot of Poseidon Bar.

When asked if the officer will be placed on suspension the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection Director John Tarkong said, “I don’t know what he is charged with. I haven’t seen the charges, everything is with BPS and CID.” He added that Hideyos is a “good officer”

The Bureau of Public Safety Director Aloysious Alonz said, “The investigation was done and there was no possession of sidearm charge. We have charged him under Family Protection Act.” (Eshan Kalyanikar)
