A federal judge is sentencing a Big Island man to 20 years in prison for conspiring to deal methamphetamine.
    
U.S. District Court Judge Michael Seabright on Tuesday fined Michael Sakuma $20,000.
    
The U.S. Attorney for Hawaii says Sakuma admitted in court to possessing more than seven and a half pounds of methamphetamine that he planned to distribute on the Big Island. The 50-year-old pleaded guilty in January.
    
Prosecutors say Hawaii County police executing search warrants found the methamphetamine in two safes hidden behind wooden shelves at a Kailua-Kona warehouse.
    
Hawaii County police and Drug Enforcement Administration agents investigated the case.
