A 44-year-old Paauilo man is facing a host of charges for attempted possession and distribution of over 5 pounds of methamphetamine and damaging a police vehicle, Hawaii County Prosecuting Attorney Kelden Waltjen announced late Wednesday.
Timothy Nacis was charged via complaint following his arrest on Monday in Paauilo, according to Waltjen. He faces two counts of attempted first-degree promoting a dangerous drug and one count each second-degree attempted promoting of a dangerous drug, second-degree criminal property damage, ownership or possession prohibited, and prohibited acts related to drug paraphernalia.
If convicted as charged, Nacis faces sentencing to a mandatory minimum prison term without the possibility of parole. According to Waltjen, Nacis is a repeat offender with three prior felony convictions.
He is scheduled to make his initial appearance Thursday in Hilo District Court. He remained in custody in lieu of $200,000 bail as of press-time Wednesday.
