Maui police find $500,000 worth of cocaine in bust...[HI]
    #11373709 - 11/03/09 01:03 AM (8 years, 23 days ago)

Nov. 2nd 09 - KITV.com

HONOLULU -- The Maui Police Department arrested a 40-year-old man authorities said imported packages of powdered cocaine to the Valley Isle from California in recent years.

Police arrested the Lahaina man on charge of promoting a dangerous drug

Authorities said they received information about packages sent to Maui. Maui police opened one of the packages after obtaining a search warrant. The investigation netted about 1 pound of powered cocaine and drug paraphernalia, officials said.

The estimated value of the drugs was $540,000, police said.

Despite the find, police released the man pending further investigation.

The prosecutor's office will review the case, police said.

MAUI WOWIE!

That's like nothing btw, what is that, 25 keys at 20k a pop?  Hawaii is an island nation which means harder to import which means that you're probably talking less than 15-20 keys.

Lot of coke for the individual no doubt but it can't be more than the  weekly or monthly rotation for any organization that's receiving that much coke.

well...it was actually only a pound...less than one kilo. They're making their estimate at about $100 a gram.

1 lb is 450 or so grams @ 540k = 1200 a gram. Either that or that was some solid gold paraphernalia. Now I have had some knock out blow in my life but nothing I'd be willing to spend that kinda cash on. Just another attempt by a state to over inflate their seizures to justify the amount spent on the bust. Oh and get more of those federal funds to fuck up more peoples lives.
