Maui Man Sentenced to Over Six Years in Prison for Illegal Possession of Firearms

News Release from US DoJ, March 5, 2020

HONOLULU, Hawaii – Ikaika Reinhardt, 38, of Maui County, was sentenced today in federal court by Chief United States District Judge J. Michael Seabright to 75 months of imprisonment, and five years of supervised release for receipt of firearms while under indictment and possession of firearms in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.

US Attorney for the District of Hawaii Kenji M. Price announced that, according to court documents and information presented in court, on March 7, 2019, Reinhardt traded methamphetamine for two stolen firearms while he was under indictment for state felonies. In addition, Reinhardt illegally possessed two other firearms, one of which was semiautomatic that had a large capacity magazine loaded with ammunition.

The case was investigated by the Maui Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated the case. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Darren W.K. Ching.

This prosecution is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program that brings together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of its renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

This case is also part of Project Guardian, the Department of Justice’s signature initiative to reduce gun violence and enforce federal firearms laws. Initiated by the Attorney General in the fall of 2019, Project Guardian draws upon the Department’s past successful programs to reduce gun violence; enhances coordination of federal, state, local, and tribal authorities in investigating and prosecuting gun crimes; improves information-sharing by the ATF when a prohibited individual attempts to purchase a firearm and is denied by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), to include taking appropriate actions when a prospective purchaser is denied by the NICS for mental health reasons; and ensures that federal resources are directed at the criminals posing the greatest threat to our communities. The United States Attorney’s Office has prosecuted this case with support from the following Project Guardian partners: the ATF and the MPD.
