Oahu man to appear in court for smuggling illegal goods

An Oahu man is due in court next month after he was accused of smuggling illegal goods.

Sergio Traya Biscocho Jr. was arrested after law enforcement seized products made from ivory, whale bone and black coral from several stores in Honolulu.

He allegedly gave the goods to the stores, after he smuggled them in from the Philippines.

NOAA and Homeland Security are investigating.

Biscocho was released from custody Friday after posting $100,000 bail.

His next court date is June 4.
