After a six-day jury trial in the United States District Court in Honolulu, a federal jury Wednesday found Allen Gorion, 32, of Honolulu, guilty of conspiring to distribute and possess with intent to distribute approximately six pounds of methamphetamine, as well as attempting to possess the methamphetamine.
Florence T. Nakakuni, United States Attorney for the District of Hawaii, said that according to the evidence presented at trial, Gorion was assisting other individuals in conspiring to distribute six pounds of methamphetamine in Hawaii that had been hidden in a toaster oven and then mailed from California to Hawaii back in June 2015.
The evidence presented at trial established that Gorion was driving his vehicle on Farrington Highway near Kapolei on the afternoon of June 18, 2015, when he was stopped by a Honolulu Police officer who was assisting DEA. A search of Gorion’s vehicle revealed evidence establishing that Gorion was involved in the charged conspiracy.
Telephone records and other evidence produced at trial convinced the jury that Gorion was guilty of the conspiracy and the attempt to possess the six pounds of methamphetamine that was mailed in the toaster oven.
