HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Authorities have arrested an adult corrections officer at Halawa Correctional Facility in connection with a continuing investigation on methamphetamine dealing at the prison.
Mark Samson Damas, 45, was arrested shortly after 11 a.m. Sunday while he was on duty. He was taken into custody by FBI agents, investigators from the state Department of Public Safety's Internal Affairs office and the state Sheriff Division.
"Mr. Damas has been charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine here at the Halawa Corrections Facility," said FBI Special Agent Tom Simon, shortly after the arrest.
The FBI also released a nine-page affidavit, which includes the transcripts of calls made to and from Damas' cell phone, starting on Sept. 5, 2013, the day after the Federal court authorized the FBI to intercept Damas' audio calls and text messages.
