Two men arrested for night hunting and drug charges
February 23, 2011
Two North Kohala men were arrested earlier this month following a report
of possible illegal night hunting.
On February 13 around 8:48 p.m., North Kohala police officers responded
to a report of gunshots from possible illegal hunters in the area of Cannery
Road. Officers located 30-year-old Kenika Matsuda of Keokea and 28-year-old
Aric Hoshida of Hāwī in a pickup truck as it was leaving the area. During
checks of the vehicle, officers located hunting dogs and a wild boar carcass
in the truck’s bed. After further investigation, officers also recovered
marijuana and a rifle.
Both men were arrested for night hunting and third-degree promotion of a
detrimental drug. They were released pending further investigation.
