The most recent edition of the Crime Stoppers television program “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted” highlights a Kona man wanted for a stabbing, a Pāhoa man wanted for auto theft, and a 40-year-old man wanted on an outstanding warrant.
The new episode begins airing Friday (June 29).
In it, police ask for the public’s help in locating 29-year-old Tommy Eugan Howard of Kona, who is wanted for a stabbing at White Sands Beach in Kona on May 22. Howard also goes by the names Casino, Tommy Washington and Cesar Waltz. He is described as African-American, 5-foot-7, 145 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes—but he might wear contact lenses that alter his eye color. He has a tattoo of a chain of musical notes that runs from his left shoulder down along his left arm. He may be in Kailua-Kona or Pāpaʻikou. He is also wanted by the Washington State Department of Corrections for failure to register as a sex offender.
The television program also asks for help in locating a 20-year-old Pāhoa man wanted for auto theft and other offenses. Vehicles were stolen from Pāhoa on March 3 and from Hilo on May 25. In both cases they were taken from homes in the late night or early morning hours. Ronsten Andrade is described as 6-feet tall and 180 pounds. He frequents the lower Puna area. He is also wanted for allegedly entering a vacant home in Pāhoa illegally and remaining there for an extended period of time, and for several traffic offenses—including reckless driving.
In this latest edition of “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted,” Officer Patrick Menino also asks for information about a 40-year-old man wanted on an outstanding warrant. Sheldon Joaquin is wanted for violating terms of probation for an assault conviction. He is described as local, 5-foot-6, 150 pounds with a tan complexion. He is known to frequent the Hāmākua and Waipio Valley areas.
Police ask that anyone with information about any of these cases call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential. Crime Stoppers does not tape record phone calls or subscribe to caller ID.
