FBI raids home in Hawai'i Kai

FBI agents today raided a Hawai'i Kai home in the 1000 block of Lunalilo Home Road in connection with an identity-theft investigation.

Several people were seen handcuffed outside a home. FBI spokesman Larry Futa confirmed a search warrant was served at a home but declined further comment.

Three may face drug charges

Authorities today were seeking to charge three men with multiple drug offenses related to the alleged possession of "crack" cocaine, black- tar heroin and crystal methamphetamine.

The men, ages 42, 31 and 31, were arrested in a 5:10 p.m. raid Wednesday on an apartment at 1332 Lunalilo St.

Honolulu police Capt. Kevin Lima said the raid was conducted in response to neighborhood complaints about narcotics activity in an apartment unit. The men were booked on suspicion of third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug and possession of drug paraphernalia, mostly syringes.

A woman, 29, also was arrested but not charged, police said.

Boy arrested in teacher attacks

Police yesterday arrested a 17-year-old student on suspicion of attacking two women teachers at Wai'anae High School. The boy allegedly grabbed a teacher, 58, by the hair and struck her head against the floor. A second teacher, 59, who tried to assist the first teacher allegedly was shoved to the ground by the boy.

The student reportedly kicked both teachers while they were on the ground, and then fled. He was arrested yesterday on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening and two counts of second-degree assault before being released pending further investigation.
