Alleged fentanyl supplier charged following multi-agency drug bust in Pearl City
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Federal prosecutors have charged an alleged fentanyl supplier following a multi-agency drug bust in Pearl City, officials said Tuesday.
Authorities said 38-year-old Bronson Kepaa is charged with drug and firearms offenses.
According to court documents, the Drug Enforcement Administration found Kepaa at a townhome in Waiau Gardens Kai on Monday after a network of his alleged dealers began working with federal agents.
The DEA said the group led investigators to their supplier, after a deadly overdose earlier this month.
During Kepaa’s arrest, agents found over 60 grams of suspected fentanyl, a kilogram of suspected crystal meth, multiple guns and boxes of ammunition.
If convicted, Kepaa faces between 10 years and up to life in prison.
