    Nearly 1/2 pound of Meth and 1/9 pound found on infidel, so where is the drugs coming from?

    It’s not made on Kauai or the state of Hawaii.

    What is Kauai and the state of Hawaii doing to keep drugs out of the state of Hawaii?

    Maybe they should take the Coronavirus restriction plans and implement that on drug couriers, mules, parcels, and shipping containers then maybe a real plan would come out of battling the drug epidemic on Kauai and the state of Hawaii but maybe the current events is what these public safety officials want or profit from so no real plan is needed.

    What do the local politics say about the many drug trafficking going on Kapaa side? Someone is selling it on the inside. Like a worker or a cop for a company.

    Any other names you can give besides Arthur Brun? One time county councilmen and umpire for a Kapaa high school baseball game.
