Police have located an Hamakua man who had been sought on a variety of bench warrants.

Police said an anonymous tip led them to Adrien Kalani in Honoka`a. He was arrested this morning without incident on the outstanding warrants.

Kalani, 49, of Ahualoa was charged with promotion of a dangerous drug, possession of drug paraphernalia and four counts of contempt of court.

His bail was initially set at $28,300, but that could change as additional charges are pending, police said.
