    A Maui man was found at a roadside stand in possession of 15 ahi weighing between two and two-and-a-half pounds.

Conservation officers have cited a Maui resident on suspicion of selling undersized ahi in the Lahaina area.

State Department of Land and Natural Resources Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement Officers following up on an anonymous tip on Tuesday afternoon cited Crispin B. Santos, 37, of Kahului, after finding him at a roadside stand in possession of 15 ahi weighing between two and two-and-a-half pounds.

Under state law, it is unlawful “to possess with the intent to sell or offer for sale any ahi less than three pounds in weight.”

Santos was given a court date to appear in Lahaina District Court.
