Two Kona women facing a myriad of drug offenses related to methamphetamine, fentanyl, and heroin were granted supervised release by a Kona District Court judge Tuesday, Jan. 18.

On Friday, Jan. 14, 44-year-old Jennifer Conway was allegedly found in possession of 25 or more capsules or dosage units of fentanyl as well as over an eighth ounce of methamphetamine. She’s been charged with three counts of second-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug and prohibited acts related to drug paraphernalia.

Conway was initially being held on $85,250 bail. However, District Court Judge Kimberly Taniyama granted supervised release over the prosecution’s objection.
