The most recent edition of the Crime Stoppers television program “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted” highlights a 46-year-old man wanted for a violent crime in Puna last year, and two men who have since been arrested.
The new episode begins airing Friday, November 25.
In it, police ask for the public’s help in locating 46-year-old Rexford Milo, who is wanted for threatening a 64-year-old Leilani Estates man with a shotgun, knocking him to the ground, tying him up, stealing cash, identification and credit cards and then driving off in the victim’s pickup truck. Milo is described as Caucasian, 5-foot-10, 145 pounds with brown hair and hazel eyes. He may be in the Hawaiian Ocean View Estates area. Please do not approach Milo, as he may be armed and dangerous.
Police ask that anyone with information about Milo’s whereabouts 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.
In the latest episode of the television program, which was prerecorded, Officer Patrick Menino also asks for help in locating 19-year-old Stetson Kaholo of Hilo and 30-year-old Matthew Keoni Tilfas of Pāhoa. Both men have been located since the program was taped.
