One of the Waialua brothers who tried to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine has been sentenced to serve 27 years in prison.

Jacob Drummondo-Farias, 31, was found guilty yesterday for being a manager and supervisor of a conspiracy to distribute and possess meth, according to the U.S. Attorney's office. Drummondo-Farias and his 28-year-old brother Joshua Lew agreed with other individuals to distribute meth that was sent from California to Honolulu via express mail services in 2011 and 2012, according to a press release.

Florence T. Nakakuni, U.S. Attorney for the District of Hawaii, said in the press release that Drummondo-Farias has a prior federal felony drug conviction for distributing meth. He said federal law enforcement intercepted a parcel containing 890 grams of methamphetamine belonging to Drummondo-Farias in January 2012. Due to his prior conviction, Drummondo-Farias faced a 20-year mandatory minimum sentence.

Lew pled guilty to the same offense and will be sentenced April 21.
