HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A Pahoa man was arrested by Hawaii island police following a month-long drug investigation.

Investigators say tips from the public about drug dealing at Kahaluu Beach Park led them to 47-year-old Samuel Keohokapu.

Police say Keohokapu allegedly had heroin and crystal meth on him when officers took him into custody in Keauhou last week. Some of the drugs were reportedly packaged for distribution.

Keohokapu is now charged with multiple drug offenses.

His bail was set at $22,000.
