Big Island man charged in meth case

Big Island Circuit Judge Glenn S. Hara sentenced a Mountain View man yesterday to 10 years in prison for second-degree methamphetamine trafficking and first-degree burglary.

Joshua Shane Soares, 22, must serve at least three years and four months before he will be eligible for parole, the Hawaii County Prosecutor's Office said in a news release.

Police stopped Soares on April 5 after seeing him driving with his 1-year-old son not properly restrained in a car safety seat, the prosecutor said. During the traffic stop, a drug-sniffing police dog detected narcotics. Officers found 1.08 grams of methamphetamine, empty packets and a digital scale in the vehicle, the prosecutor said.
