With the assistance of the State Department of Land and Natural Resources and the Hawaii National Guard, Kona Vice Section officers seized 197 marijuana plants, ranging in height from seedlings to 6 feet, outside the residence.

Inside, they recovered 360 grams of dried marijuana, 0.3 grams of crystal methamphetamine, or “ice,” and 11 pills of what is believed to be a harmful drug.
