One of the individuals implicated in last year's major drug smuggling conspiracy, involving former Department of Corrections officers, remains at large months after a warrant was issued for her arrest.

Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola said defendant Liana Cabrera still had an outstanding bench warrant during case proceedings Thursday.

According to Post files, a warrant on Cabrera initially was issued in October 2017. She did not appear for her magistrate hearing that month.

Assistant Attorney General Mathew Phelps said the warrant on Cabrera has remained active since she was charged.

"Still haven't found her," Phelps said.

Cabrera was charged with possession of a Schedule II controlled substance and hindering apprehension. She was one of 13 individuals charged in an alleged drug smuggling conspiracy at the the DOC facility in Mangilao.


The defendants included two maximum security inmates and six DOC officers who separated from the agency as the case proceeded. Among the officers charged was the former head of DOC internal affairs, Jeffrey Limo.  

The government has alleged text messages were exchanged between the inmates and corrections officers, who allegedly accepted bribes and helped coordinate the smuggling of crystal methamphetamine, cellphones and other contraband into the prison.
