Big Island police are asking the public’s assistance in locating a stolen camera lens reportedly taken in early May.

A visiting production company was in Hilo and was staying at a hotel on Banyan Drive. An employee of the company reported that while in the lobby of the hotel and loading production equipment into the company’s vehicles, the case containing a Canon HJ-21 X 7.5 video camera lens with the serial number 10113 was missing. Subsequent area checks were conducted and the lens could not be located.
