Police reported finding black tar heroin in a car driven by a Haiku man who was arrested Tuesday night for driving under the influence of drugs.
Lyon Longstaff, 36, was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant and refusing to submit to testing. His bail was set at $1,100.
He was arrested after Wailuku Patrol officer Wilfred Ahuna stopped a gold Honda Accord on Waiale Drive at Olomea Street at 11:56 p.m. Tuesday, police said.
The driver, Longstaff, failed field sobriety testing.
After a police K9 dog alerted to the presence of drugs in the car, the vehicle was impounded, police said. In a search, police found a half-gram of black tar heroin and hypodermic needles, police said.
