HONOLULU (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Service says it found cocaine and crystal methamphetamine on a man being arrested for a probation violation at the Honolulu Airport.

The service said Thursday that authorities arrested 49-year-old Edwin Parker Auld III of Kaneohe on a probation violation. A court in Nevada issued a no-bail warrant for Auld in January.

Authorities say Auld was arrested Wednesday afternoon at Honolulu International Airport, where he was scheduled to fly to Kailua-Kona on the Big Island.

Auld's original conviction was for trafficking cocaine.

The service says it referred Auld's case to the Drug Enforcement Administration.
