During the weeklong campaign, Officers working the SPEED detail issued a total of 634 citations. The citations are broken down as follows:
During the week, Officers also made six arrests. Three were for outstanding warrants. One 29 year-old female was arrested for Resisting Order to Stop and Reckless Driving in Kahului. Also, Stanceford KAINA was arrested when he was stopped for speeding, and Officers discovered he was wanted in connection to the Wailuku Minit Stop robbery.

A California man has been identified as the victim of an apparent drowning Saturday morning in Ka’anapali.
Maui Police say 50 year-old Michael Taugher of Benicia, CA, was snorkeling with members of his family in the area known as “black rock.” When he failed to return to shore, family members began their own search just before 10 a.m.
Taugher was found floating – but unresponsive – and was pulled to nearby rocks. Lifeguards and paramedics attempted CPR – to no avail – and he expired on the scene. Maui Police believe no criminal activity was involved – but withheld his identity until his whole family could be notified.
Working through the brunt of the storm, Maui County Public Works crews have made it possible for residents in Kaupo, Nu’u and Kipahulu to reach Hana Town.
Pi’ilani Highway remains impassable betwen mile markers 28 and 38 due to bloackage from debris, mountain run off, boulders and branches – but now there is releif and access available to at least three communities.
