A 46-year-old man is in police custody after being charged Friday (January 19) with various property crimes in Kona and South Kohala.
On Wednesday, January 18, West Hawaii Criminal Investigations Section detectives arrested Flemming Schelbeck, who has no permanent address, on four outstanding warrants while he was being sought as a suspect for recent burglaries and thefts in Kona. Prior to being arrested, Schelbeck attempted to flee from detectives in a stolen vehicle in Kalaoa. After Schelbeck was arrested, police obtained a search warrant for the stolen vehicle.
As a result of property recovered from within the vehicle, Schelbeck was arrested and charged with three counts of burglary, four counts of theft, two counts of criminal property damage, unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, and trespassing.
His bail was set at $39,900. He is in custody at the cellblock of the Kona District Station awaiting his court appearance today.
Kona detectives are continuing their investigation into these and other recent related cases for which Schelbeck may be responsible. Police ask anyone who may have information about these cases to call Acting Lieutenant Bradley Freitas at phone 326-4646 extension 228.
