Acting on a search warrant at 10:05 a.m., vice officers raided Apartment 105 of the Orchid Manor on Kalanianaole Avenue in Hilo’s Keaukaha area.

During the raid, vice officers recovered 13.5 grams of crystal methamphetamine, or “ice,” 9.4 grams of dry marijuana, 0.6 grams of “crack” cocaine, 6 soma pills and packets, smoking pipes, a scale and containers. They also recovered a glass cup that was in the process of converting methamphetamine to “ice” with a gross weight of 44.1 grams.
