Pair Arrested in HPP Drug Bust

The Hawai`i Police Department arrested a male and female at a home in Hawaiian Paradise Park Thursday morning.

Just after 7 a.m., officers and detectives assigned to the Vice Section executed a search warrant at a 10th Avenue residence.

During the search police recovered 36 marijuana plants, 9.6 pounds of dried processed marijuana and numerous pieces of equipment used to cultivate and process marijuana.

Thirty-nine-year-old Shelton Pacarro and 37-year-old Precious Dela Cruz, both of that address, were arrested at the scene. The marijuana seized in this case has a street value of just over $80,000.

On Friday afternoon, Shelton Pacarro was charged with 1st degree promotion of a detrimental drug, second-degree commercial promotion of marijuana and two counts of prohibited acts related to drug paraphernalia.

Pacarro was released after posting $7,050.00 bail and Dela Cruz was released pending additional investigation.
