Hawaiʻi Island police have located 40-year-old Mary Lolita Santos of Mountain View, who was wanted in connection with a reported burglary and domestic incident in Kurtistown on August 16 and on bench warrants.
Santos was arrested in Hilo on November 20 and charged on bench warrants for second-degree theft stemming from an incident on May 19 at a store on Makaʻala Street in Hilo and two counts of contempt of court. While at the Hilo police cellblock over the next two days, she was also charged with shoplifting for an incident on July 12 at a store on Makaʻala Street in Hilo, with fourth-degree theft for an incident on August 17 at a store on Henry Street in Kailua-Kona and with second-degree theft for an incident on November 13 at a store in Waiākea Plaza in Hilo.
In addition, Santos was arrested on suspicion of burglary, assault, terroristic threatening, criminal property damage, phone ripping and violation of a protective order in connection with the August 16 incident in Kurtistown. After conferring with prosecutors, detectives released Santos on the Kurtistown offenses pending further investigation. Detectives have since forwarded those investigations to the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney.
