HONOLULU (AP) - A 31-year-old Hawaii prison guard has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges including conspiracy to smuggle methamphetamine into prison.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says James "Kimo" Sanders III of Kailua also was indicted on bribery and drug-related counts covering the period between October and Jan. 12.

Sanders, a Halawa prison guard, was arrested Jan. 12 and charged with methamphetamine distribution and bribery.

He pleaded not guilty and was released to his grandmother on a $50,000 bond. He also was ordered to wear a positioning device.
