A 36-year-old Kona man remains in custody after being charged with possession of methamphetamine and a loaded gun. 

Danny Campogan was charged with promoting a dangerous drug, meth trafficking, possessing drug paraphernalia and 18 firearms related offenses, including being a felon in possession of a firearm. His bail was set at $593,000.

Campogan was arrested Wednesday in Kailua-Kona. Police said they found 15.7 grams of a crystalline substance packaged in amounts consistent with meth distribution, a loaded handgun and several rounds of unspent ammunition when they searched Campogan's car. 

Also arrested with Campogan was a 27-year-old woman who was later released, pending further investigation.

Actually, I believe it is against the law for any person to be carrying a non-registered loaded weapon on their person without the proper permits.
