Waialua brothers convicted of meth trafficking

By Associated Press


Two brothers from Waialua have been convicted of methamphetamine trafficking.

The U.S. Attorney's office announced that a federal jury on Thursday found Jacob Drummondo-Farias guilty of conspiring to distribute and possess, with intent to distribute, 50 grams or more of meth.

His brother and co-defendant Joshua Lew pleaded guilty to the same charge.

Prosecutors say the brothers agreed with others to distribute meth that was mailed to Honolulu from California. Prosecutors say they orchestrated the shipment of 850 grams of meth, which was intercepted at the Honolulu airport by law enforcement.

Lew faces up to life in prison with a mandatory minimum term of 10 years. His brother also faces life but because of a previous drug conviction, he faces a mandatory minimum term of 20 years.

It's amazing that guys who get convicted of stealing the life savings of hundreds by Ponzi Scheme get less time than drug dealers.
