Posted: Monday, September 21, 2009

ANCHORAGE - Two people injured in a home invasion robbery last May have been indicted on federal drug charges.

Thirty-one-year-old Tupou Satini Jr. and 23-year-old Amy Renee Itta are charged with plotting to receive a package from California containing 573 grams of crystal methamphetamine hidden in a pink Barbie Tough Trike box.

Satini's 24-year-old sister, Nanasi Kalala Satini, was also charged as a co-conspirator.

Thieves on May 4 broke into Tupou Satini's south Anchorage home and demanded money.

One robber pistol-whipped Satini, cutting his head and causing the gun to fire.

Satini's brother, Lofia Satini, struggled with the attackers. He was shot twice in the chest and Itta was shot in the back. Both gunshot victims survived.
