MEDIA RELEASE UPDATE
A second suspect wanted in a robbery that occurred early Thursday (July 17, 2003) has turned himself into police.
The suspect was identified as Brandon Jason Enos, 21, of no permanent address.
Enos gave himself up to police at 12:10 p.m. Monday and is being held in the Hilo police cellblock on five outstanding bench warrants, robbery and terroristic threatening pending further investigation by Hilo Criminal Investigation Section detectives.
Enos had been described as armed and dangerous after he was seen Friday morning brandishing a semi-automatic handgun.
The first suspect in the robbery, Waimoku Lum Ho, of a Hilo address, was charged Friday with one count each of first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, first-degree terroristic threatening, promotion of a detrimental drug and possession of illegal drug paraphernalia and two counts of illegal place to keep a weapon.
The robbery occurred shortly before 1:30 a.m. Thursday when five males forced their way into a residence on Ka’ohe Homestead Road near Pahoa. Two of the robbers were armed with firearms and one was armed with a bow and arrow.
The victim said the robbers demanded drugs and cash, and after being told he had no drugs, the robbers took some marijuana and personal items and then fled the residence on foot.
Patrol officers responding to the victim’s 911 call spotted several males walking along Ka’ohe Homestead Road and arrested Lum Ho. The rest fled into the surrounding heavy brush.
Anyone with information about the incident or the identity of the remaining robbers is asked to call Detective Richard Sherlock of the Hilo CIS at 961-2379 or the police non-emergency number at 935-3311.
