U.S. Postal Service inspectors intercepted a package on its way to the Big Island and inside was a large quantity of a narcotic, also known as “ice.” Then, on Monday, Jan. 3, officers and federal agents with the U.S. Postal Service and Homeland Security Investigations began a joint operation.

After Nacis received the package from a postal facility, a police officer tried to conduct a traffic stop. However, Big Island police reported that Nacis tried to flee the scene, and he allegedly rammed into the officer’s vehicle on the driver’s front side and continued to accelerate in an attempt to get past.

As a result, the officer’s vehicle became “adjacent to a ravine with a 100-foot drop” and suffered damage, Big Island police added. When police tried to arrest Nacis, they reported he apparently physically assaulted another officer and tried to resist arrest.

Here is a list of all that Timothy Nacis was charged with on Jan. 5:

  • Two counts of first-degree promoting a dangerous drug (possession)
  • Second-degree promoting a dangerous drug
  • First-degree attempted promoting a dangerous drug (distribution)
  • Ownership possession prohibited
  • Prohibited acs related to drug paraphernalia
  • Second-degree criminal property damage
