The U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Kauai Police Department Vice Division worked together to arrest a Kapaa man on multiple drug charges last month.

Donovan Cameron-Ray, 22, was arrested on Monday, May 16, for first-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, first-degree promotion of a harmful drug and two counts of drug paraphernalia.

Cameron-Ray is scheduled to appear in court on June 29.

The Postal Inspector notified KPD of a parcel containing 300 Xanax bars, nearly 198 MDMA pills, and 2.6 grams of cocaine that was to be delivered to a home on Olohena Road in Kapaa.

The suspect, later identified as Cameron-Ray, received the parcel at his home on May 16 and had it in his vehicle when he was stopped by police near Kukui Street later that day.

Cameron-Ray was the lone occupant of the vehicle and was subsequently arrested on multiple drug charges. He was booked and released after posting $42,000.

Officers were able to recover all of the drugs initially identified by the Postal Inspector.

Xanax is a prescription medication most often prescribed for anxiety and is a Schedule IV drug, as classified by the DEA. MDMA is a stimulant and psychedelic, and is classified by the DEA as a Schedule I drug. Schedule I drugs are the most dangerous as they have no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse and severe psychological or physical dependence, according to the DEA.
