Man who got meth parcel at Honolulu Airbnb pleads guilty

HONOLULU — A man accused of using a Honolulu vacation rental to receive a package mailed from California containing 11 pounds of methamphetamine is pleading guilty to drug dealing-related charges.

Walter Rolando Atemio Dominguez-Garcia pleaded guilty Tuesday to seven counts with mandatory minimum sentences of 10 years in prison each. He faces up to life behinds bars when he’s sentenced in March.

Dominguez-Garcia says he sold meth and cocaine in Hawaii and elsewhere.

Court documents say he was staying at an Airbnb rental in Honolulu when he received the package addressed to him. When he was arrested, an Airbnb spokeswoman said he was permanently banned from the platform.

Crystal meth is a popular illicit drug in Hawaii. Prosecutors say he sold a pound of meth to an undercover agent for $9,000.
