Man remanded back to custody after testing positive for meth
Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — A man who was out on bond was remanded back to custody last week after he tested positive for meth, during a random test administered by Probation.
Wilson Logomai, who is facing drug charges, appeared in High Court last week for an Order to Show Cause (OSC) hearing on Contempt of Court Order.
Associate Justice Fiti Sunia said based on a report from the Probation Office, the defendant violated a condition of his bond release, which required him to remain clean at all times. He said the defendant failed his urinalysis.
Sunia ordered that Logomai be returned to the TCF, to await his preliminary hearing which is set for Dec. 3, 2019.
Logomai is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine); and unlawful possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, both felonies.
The charges against Logomai stem from an incident that occurred on Oct. 21, 2018 when armed detectives of the Vice & Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant on his house and property, and allegedly discovered illegal drugs, paraphernalia and cash.
