Ex-firefighter sentenced for selling meth at Kahului Fire Station

By Associated Press


A former Maui firefighter has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for selling methamphetamine at the Kahului Fire Station.

Juanito Dudoit, 49, was sentenced Tuesday. He had been a firefighter for more than 20 years before resigning after he was arrested last year at the fire station.

Prosecutors said Dudoit was selling meth to fellow firefighters at the station to support his own drug habit.

Deputy Prosecutor Tracy Jones said police found 2.5 grams of methamphetamine during searches of his sleeping quarters and locker. His girlfriend was in his sleeping module and told police they had been smoking meth together.

Jones said Dudoit told police he ingested meth before reporting to work.

The Maui News said Dudoit said in court he made bad decisions and needs treatment.

These the kind of people that's supposed to be protecting the public? A house or building on fire and he's high on meth. And worse yet, selling to other firefighters in the station. Clean house, fire ALL these guys and hire people that will do their job without endangering the public. And his girlfriend smoking with him in his module. I know his job is stressful and dangerous, but a meth addict at work ain't gonna cut it with me.
