HONOLULU (KHNL) - Three officers with the Honolulu Police Department are facing criminal charges. They are accused of being involved with an illegal gambling operation on Oahu's North Shore.
A federal grand jury Thursday indicted the three officers, as well as six civilians, on various charges.
According to court documents unsealed late Thursday afternoon, the civilian suspects conducted an illegal gambling business that involved cockfighting, craps and card games across the street from Waialua Elementary School.
Also indicted are Sergeant Kevin Brunn, Officer Bryson Apo and Officer Glenn Miram. They are accused of providing the gambling operation a heads-up on police raids.
Brunn has 21 years of service with H.P.D. He was assigned to Wahiawa patrol.
Apo has been with H.P.D. for eight years. He was with the Kailua-Kaneohe-Kahuku Crime Reduction Unit.
Miram, a seven-year H.P.D. veteran, was assigned to the Narcotics-Vice Division's Gambling detail.
According to court papers, Officer Bryson Apo told one of the operators "the gambling detail would hit Waianae tomorrow so that the Waialua chicken fight would be all right."
Meanwhile, Sergeant Kevin Brunn is suspected of "warning one or more of the operators of the Waialua cockfights...of raids."
