Hawaii prison guard arrested for smuggling meth

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) A Hawaii corrections officer has been charged with allegedly smuggling methamphetamine into an Oahu prison.

FBI Special Agent Tom Simon said that 45-year-old Marc Damas was arrested about 11 yesterday morning at the Halawa Correctional Facility where he works.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Damas was charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute and possessing with the intent to distribute five grams or more of meth.

Simon says Damas will be taken to a federal detention center before an appearance today in U.S. District Court.

Damas is the latest prison guard arrested for allegedly smuggling meth into Halawa Correctional Facility.

On Jan. 12, 31-year-old James Sanders III was arrested and charged with two counts of distributing methamphetamine and bribery. He has pleaded not guilty.
