Advertiser Staff

A 61-year-old Wai'anae man faces 15 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to selling two pounds of crystal methamphetamine to an undercover deputy sheriff in July.

His 43-year-old girlfriend who was with him during the July 13 arrest faces 10 years to life in prison.

Rudy Alcosiba Generalao pleaded guilty to a two-count information charging him with a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy and carrying a firearm. Codefendant Rhonda Kamalii, also of Wai'anae, pleaded guilty Tuesday to the conspiracy.

Generalao will be sentenced on April 9; Kamalii on March 29.

United States Attorney Edward H. Kubo, Jr. said Generalao and Kamalii were arrested after selling $80,000 worth of crystal meth to the deputy sheriff.

A search of the vehicle driven by Kamalii to the deal resulted in the recovery of an additional two pounds of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, currency and a bullet proof vest. Generalao had a loaded Raven .25 caliber revolver in his possession.

According to other information disclosed in court proceedings, additional amounts of methamphetamine, more than a dozen glass pipes and other drug paraphernalia were recovered from the couple's residence in Wai'anae.
