HAWAII ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii Island police seized a massive collection of drugs and narcotics while recently executing a search warrant on a Pahoa home.

According to police, authorities moved in on the Ainaloa home on Jan. 18.

Within the home, they recovered over 1500 grams of marijuana and over 580 grams of crystal methamphetamine, both packaged for distribution. They also seized over 30 grams of Heroin, more than 115 grams of cocaine and over 750 opioid prescription pills.

Police estimate the street value of the narcotics at just over $143,000.

Authorities also found $15,000 in U.S. currency.

Two people were arrested at the home: 45-year-old Jason Ledward and 31-year-old Jasmine Enriques. Both are Pahoa residents.

A day later, police charged Ledward with seven total counts of drug promotion ranging from first to fourth degree offenses, as well as prohibited acts related to drugs.

His bail was set at $460,000.

Enriques was slapped with a charge of third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug. Her bail was set at $5,000.
