HONOLULU (KHNL) - A man charged in connection with a large crystal methamphetamine seizure in Kalihi made his initial court appearance Monday.

Romulo Lomboy, 57, is charged with meth trafficking and possessing drug paraphernalia. He's in custody, unable to post $100,000 bail.

Kalihi police raided the accused dealer's home on Ahonui Street last Thursday. They say they found more than 3 lbs. of ice, with a street value of about $230,000.

A preliminary hearing is set for Wednesday.
