WAILUKU — Police recovered large amounts of a variety of drugs last week while investigating a 37-year-old Wailuku man who had been released on bail in another drug case, a deputy prosecutor said Monday.

After being arrested Thursday, Robert Cramer was charged with three counts of first-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, four counts of possessing drug paraphernalia, second-degree promotion of a detrimental drug, driving while his license was suspended or revoked and driving without a license.

During his initial appearance Monday in Wailuku District Court, Deputy Prosecutor Tracy Jones asked for bail to remain at $500,000.

In arresting Cramer, police recovered 111.34 grams of heroin, 85.47 grams of crystal methamphetamine, 38.79 grams of cocaine, 70.59 grams of marijuana and $3,050 in cash, Jones said.

Cramer had been free after posting a $500,000 bail bond for felony drug and firearm charges in another case. That bail bond was discharged and he was being held for that case as well, Jones said.

Deputy Public Defender William Pannell said Cramer has seven children and has helped with their online education at home while his wife works six to eight hours a day. “He is very concerned about child care,” Pannell said.

Judge Blaine Kobayashi kept Cramer’s bail at $500,000.
