An Oahu grand jury returned an indictment charging the licensed pawnbroker and dealer of secondhand goods police arrested in a sting operation earlier this month with multiple theft and drug trafficking charges.

Wednesday's indictment also charges Luke J. Warner, 45, with attempting to violate the prohibition on convicted felons owning or possessing firearms.

Warner has prior convictions for drug possession and burglary.

He remains in custody unable to post $250,000 bail.

Police said Warner did business out of his car, in his 34th-floor Hawaiian Monarch Hotel home and the hotel’s lobby. They said he knowingly accepted stolen goods for which he paid cash or traded for drugs.
