UPDATE 5/15 3 P.M.

67-year-old Chadwick Fukui of Hilo, one of the two retired Big Island police officers indicted on charges of gambling and drug-related crimes has turned himself in.

Fukui turned himself in to Big Island police Wednesday at 9:44 a.m.

His charges included 2 counts of Hindering Prosecution, each with a bail of $500. Also, he was charged with two counts of Tampering with Physical Evidence, each with a bail of $500.


Two retired officers were indicted in connection to missing drug evidence and gambling cases.

Brian Miller is charged with multiple offenses including tampering with evidence, obstructing government operations, and theft.

Court documents allege he stole a Fed-Ex package, cocaine evidence, and tipped off two people of a raid on a suspected illegal gambling establishment between 2014 and 2017.

Chadwick Fukui is charged with hindering prosecution, criminal conspiracy, and tampering with physical evidence.

Fukui is accused of helping Miller tip off possible suspects and destroy evidence in that raid.

West Hawaii Today reports both are retired Big Island Police officers, and court documents also name four other defendants. 

In 2017 Big Island police found cocaine evidence collected in 2014 was lighter in weight than first reported. 

The department identified an officer as a suspect and found marijuana concentrate evidence that that same officer handled was also lighter than was first reported.

The department said it's since changed procedures to ensure it doesn't happen again.
