Pāhoa man granted supervised release after unlawful entry into neighbor’s home and drug possession
A Hilo District Court judge granted supervised release to a Pāhoa man, who was charged with unauthorized entry into his neighbor’s home and possession of cocaine.
Dale Corbridge, 45, was arrested in the early morning hours on Nov. 11 at a residence in Kalapana. According to police reports, Corbridge entered his neighbor’s residence, with whom he is not allowed to have contact due to an active injunction against harassment while carrying a black Crosman C11 air pistol.
Corbridge, who was in custody in lieu of $6,250 bail, made his initial appearance on Monday morning in Hilo District Court. Corbridge was granted supervised release over Hawai‘i County prosecutors’ objections and ordered to appear for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 27.
Corbridge is facing charges of second-degree unauthorized entry into a dwelling, two counts of third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, third-degree promotion of a detrimental drug and prohibited acts related to drug paraphernalia.
Unauthorized Entry Into a Dwelling in the Second Degree and Promoting a Dangerous Drug in the Third Degree are both class C felony offenses that carry a penalty of either a five-year prison term or four years probation and up to 12 months in jail.
