A woman police say had $300,000 worth of drugs, including enough fentanyl to kill thousands of people, was arrested in Hawaii recently, according to an incident report.
Jennifer M. Conway, 44, of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, is facing 16 charges after police say they found 800 grams of crystal meth, 50 grams of heroin and 2,700 fentanyl pills in her possession. She also had two fraudulent identification cards and an unregistered .45-caliber pistol, according to the Hawaii County Police Department.
On April 21, investigators from the Area II Vice Section and special agents from the Department of Homeland Security made the arrest. After getting a search warrant, police say they found the drugs, fake ID cards and gun in Conway's luggage, person, vehicle and home.
On April 22, Conway was charged with three counts of promoting a dangerous drug in the third degree, seven counts of promoting a dangerous drug in the first degree, one count of drug paraphernalia, two counts of ownership prohibited, one count of mandatory registration, one count each of a promotion of a harmful drug in the third and fourth degree.
Fentanyl is an opioid often mixed with other drugs to enhance the affects. A small amount can be deadly. The DEA says a 2-milligram dose can be lethal.
Conway was booked into the Kealakehe Police Station on $425,250 bail.
