HILO, Hawaii (AP) - The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration last month closed its Hilo office and a hangar it maintained at Hilo International Airport.
DEA Special Agent Sarah Pullen told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald the office closed to save money. She says all parts of the Justice Department had to close offices to cut costs.
Pullen says the DEA's aviation division will continue to provide support from Honolulu. She says the DEA will continue to conduct investigations and assist local law enforcement throughout Hawaii.
For decades, the DEA has helped state and county officials spray Big Island marijuana plants from helicopters.
But Hawaii County Police Department Maj. Randy Apele says the county doesn't carry out aerial enforcement any more. He says the closing won't affect county operations.
