Hawaii man sentenced to jail for hiding meth pipe in son’s diaper

WAILUKU, Hawaii >> A Hawaii man accused of hiding a methamphetamine pipe in his infant son’s diaper while police searched his home has been sentenced to a year in jail.

Aaron Moran, 55, pleaded no contest to two counts of third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug and possessing drug paraphernalia, The Maui News reported Tuesday.

The charges were for hiding the pipe in the baby’s diaper and for an arrest after police reported finding a methamphetamine pipe in Moran’s vehicle.

Deputy Prosecutor Tracy Jones said Moran’s decision to hide the pipe in his son’s diaper was “outrageous conduct.”

Moran asked for probation and no jail time, saying he has been off drugs for 10 months.

“I have been on this path,” Moran said. “I have been sober. My kids are more important than anything. My kids need me.”

Kathy Puaa, 65, who was living with her husband at the house that was searched, is awaiting sentencing after pleading no contest to a reduced charge of third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug and possessing drug paraphernalia.
