Vice officers recovered 6.3 grams of “ice,” drug paraphernalia and $1,460 in cash for forfeiture from the home in the Nanawale Estates subdivision.

Louise Torres, a 45-year-old resident of the house, was charged with meth trafficking, promoting a dangerous drug and possessing drug paraphernalia.

Torres’ bail was set at $165,000. She was held at the Hilo Police cellblock and was scheduled for an initial court appearance Wednesday (Oct. 20).
