Two Charged in Connection With Meth Package
Two men have been charged with drug and conspiracy offenses in connection with a package of suspected crystal methamphetamine.
On Thursday, Dec. 22, the Airport Task Force intercepted a package destined for a Kailua-Kona residence.
When the Task Force subjected the package to a narcotics-detecting canine screening, the dog displayed a positive alert, indicating the odor of a controlled substance emanating from the package.
Vice Section officers prepared and executed a search warrant and recovered about 40 grams of a substance they suspect to be crystal methamphetamine.
Investigation led to the arrest of two men Friday, Dec. 23—25-year-old James Boyle of Kailua-Kona and 31-year-old Clayton Sexton of Kailua-Kona.
Both were arrested and taken to the Kona police cellblock. Boyle was charged with criminal conspiracy and first-degree promotion of a dangerous drug. Sexton was charged with criminal conspiracy and attempted first-degree promotion of a dangerous drug.
Boyle’s bail was set at $15,000. Sexton’s was set at $60,000. Both men remained at the cellblock pending their initial court appearance scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 27.
