Media Release (update No. 2)

Detectives have charged a 21 year-old Hilo man for several offenses stemming from separate burglaries and a theft that occurred at a Hilo school.

Today (November 22, 2013) at 1:15 p.m., after conferring with prosecutors, Kalei Kaina Kaaumoana was charged with two counts of first degree burglary and three counts of second degree theft.  Kaaumoana’s bail was set at $80,000.00 and he was scheduled to make his initial court appearance next week Monday.  The incidents stem from:

An October 23, 2013 burglary in which a 91 year-old Hilo woman discovered that her residence was entered and several items were stolen.

An October 30, 2013 burglary in which a 36 year-old man reported to police that his residence was entered and several items were also stolen.

A theft of a Kamaka ukulele, reported by a Hilo school on October 21, 2013.

Police were able to recover evidence at these crime scenes, which were instrumental in the identification of the suspect in this case.
