Hawaiʻi Island police have charged Jeremy Todd Rios in connection with a carjacking incident Tuesday (July 30).
At 2:20 p.m. Wednesday (July) detectives charged him with second-degree robbery, unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, resisting an order to stop, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle, two counts of fourth-degree theft and two counts of leaving the scene of an accident.
He was also charged with second-degree assault and second-degree terroristic threatening for an incident that occurred shortly before the carjacking episode. In that case, a 55-year-old Hilo man received injuries to his face during an assault in the Wainaku area of Hilo.
Bail for Rios was set at $61,500. He was held at Hawaiʻi Community Correctional Center for an unrelated contempt of court warrant pending his court appearance scheduled for Thursday (August 1).
