A Puna man has been arrested and charged in connection with a marijuana growing operation on two properties in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision.

On Wednesday (July 24), police executed a search warrant at a home on H Street in Paradise Park, where they recovered 145 marijuana plants growing outside and in a shed that had been converted to an indoor-growing room. They also recovered 359 grams of dried marijuana from the shed and 13.32 pounds of dried processed marijuana packaged in 28 plastic bags from inside the house.

Police arrested the resident, 44-year-old Edward Fuhrmann, at 1:25 p.m. They later recovered 45 additional plants growing on a vacant lot on 8th Avenue.

At 8:15 p.m., detectives from the Area I Vice Section charged Fuhrmann with two counts of first-degree promotion of marijuana, one count of attempted first-degree promotion of marijuana and three counts of possessing drug paraphernalia. His bail was set at $36,000.

He was released from the Hilo police cellblock after posting bail.
