WAIPAHU (KHNL)  For the second time in two days Honolulu police  raided a suspected drug house, again recovering crystal methamphetamine.

Armed with a warrant, officers with H.P.D.'s Pearl City Crime Reduction Unit stormed a house in Waipahu. The home is located on Pahu Street, which is one street over from the Honolulu Police Training Academy.

Police say they launched an undercover investigation in response to complaints from the community. Officers obtained the search warrant and raided the home early Wednesday. They say they recovered crystal methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, and about $2,300 in cash. Two men and two women were arrested.

"I see the, 'cause the mom and the little kids," Manu Kaseli, the suspects' neighbor, said. "So I didn't expect that to be happening there. But there was a lot of, like, friends coming over. But I didn't expect drugs."

The Waipahu bust came on the heels of Tuesday's raid on the Windward side. Officers with H.P.D's Kaneohe Crime Reduction Unit stormed a house on Keaahala Road.

KHNL News 8 was the only television crew there as six kids, ranging in age from a few months to 11 years, were taken into state custody.

Police say they recovered $15,000 in cash, as well as crystal meth, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, electronic equipment and other property.

A man and a woman were arrested in the Kaneohe operation. Three of the four suspects in the Waipahu case remain locked up at H.P.D.'s main cellblock.
