Attorney General charged Marka Rur Gibbon with two counts of Possession of Controlled Substance (methamphetamine) last Thursday, April 30th, 2020 according to court documents.

According to charging documents, while officers were conducting search of Mr. Aiken Uehara’s residence per search warrant, Mr. Aiken Uehara’s wife Marka Rur Gibbons allegedly admitted she had drugs in her vehicle.  Upon searching the vehicle, officers found a purse that Ms. Gibbons said belonged to her.

While inspecting the purse, the police report stated, that they found a glass pipe and “several baggies containing a crystalline substance.”  Field test of the materials inside the baggies came back positive for methamphetamine or “ice”.

Possession of a Controlled Substance is a felony charge carrying a jail sentence of not less than 3 years and not more than 7 years and a fine of not more than $10,000 dollars.  Under the new tougher bail law, Ms. Gibbons bail was set at $10,000 dollars cash.

Ms. Gibbons was released on the same day after paying the $10,000 cash bail and placed in home custody at her home from 6pm to 6am as part of bail conditions.  Ms. Gibbons husband Aiken Uehera was earlier charged for trafficking and possession of controlled substance.  His bail of $50,000 cash was paid and he is out on bail awaiting trial.
