A federal grand jury indicted four men last week for allegedly conspiring to possess about 10 pounds of crystal methamphetamine with the intent to distribute it.

The indictment stated Michael Collado recruited Dominador Paguirigan, John Roscom and Eric Ordonez about the first week of October to transport the drugs to Honolulu from Los Angeles.

The three men flew to Los Angeles on Oct. 6 with each man carrying cash totaling $100,000, the indictment alleged.

At a Los Angeles Quality Inn, drug couriers dropped off multiple pounds of methamphetamine to the men, who repackaged the drugs for transport to Hawaii, the indictment stated.

On Oct. 9, the three men hid 10 pounds of methamphetamine on themselves and flew to Honolulu where Collado was waiting to pick them up, the indictment stated.
