Man accused of growing marijuana
A Puna man has been arrested and charged for allegedly growing marijuana on two properties in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision.
On Wednesday, police executed a search warrant at a home on H Street in Paradise Park, where they reportedly found 145 marijuana plants growing outside and in a shed that had been converted to an indoor-growing room. They also recovered 359 grams of dried marijuana from the shed and 13.32 pounds of dried processed marijuana packaged in 28 plastic bags from inside the house.
Police arrested the resident, 44-year-old Edward Fuhrmann, at 1:25 p.m. They later recovered 45 additional plants growing on a vacant lot on 8th Avenue.
At 8:15 p.m., Hilo vice detectives charged Fuhrmann with two counts of first-degree promotion of marijuana, one count of attempted first-degree promotion of marijuana and three counts of possessing drug paraphernalia.
He was released after posting $36,000 bail.
