Drug bust nets two in Waimea Thursday (Jan 17)


A West Hawaiʻi man and woman have been charged with numerous drug offenses after their arrest in Waimea last week.

On Thursday (January 17), South Kohala officers responded to a disturbance at a motel on Lindsey Road in Waimea. Police found 20-year-old Robert Reed, who has no permanent address, unresponsive and in a room with 22-year-old Jessie Bitton of Kailua-Kona. Narcotics were visible in the room.

Reed was taken to North Hawaiʻi Community Hospital, where he was treated and later released.

During the execution of a search warrant, Vice Section officers recovered 166.5 grams of cocaine, 7 ounces of marijuana, paraphernalia associated with the use and distribution of illegal drugs, and $8,900 in cash from the motel room, as well as a small quantity of cocaine residue and 12.1 grams of marijuana from Reed’s vehicle.

Reed and Bitton were arrested Thursday. On Friday (January 18), they were each charged with 10 counts of promoting a dangerous drug, six counts of promoting a detrimental drug, seven counts of possessing drug paraphernalia and one count of promoting a controlled substance near a school. Their bail was set at $313,000 each.

They were held at the Kona police cellblock pending their initial court appearance Tuesday (January 22).

      I agree with used nomore. The boy looks like his mommy and daddy never told him no and the girl looks like a she was looking for a fool like that.

    The boy is a drain on his parents physical and mental stability no doubt. More likely than not they’ve pulled his ass out of the fire more times than anyone should. I’m sure the parent’s life has been screwed up from having to help him and being shamed by him in front of friends and all. I’d let him go his own way and live my life with people that show me love not a face behind bars. The girl just was using him. He deserves that though for the way he uses his parents and people that try to help him. Frikin punk. Frikin scumbag couple of losers.
