Kona police arrested a 35-year-old homeless man Monday (December 13, 2004) on several counts of criminal property damage after receiving 16 separate reports of vehicles with punctured tires in the Kailua town area.
The suspect, identified as Adonis Oandasan, is being held in the Kona police cellblock pending further investigation.
Police began receiving calls about 2:15 p.m. that the tires of several vehicles were punctured in the Lanihau and Kona Coast Shopping Centers. Police believe that some of the vehicles may have been damaged as early as 10 a.m.
As the investigation continued, police received additional reports that tires were damaged on vehicles parked on Alii Drive near Huggo’s restaurant, in the area of Hanama Place near the county offices and on Henry Street near the Crossroads Professional Center.
Acting on information from witnesses, officers arrested Oandasan about 3:30 p.m. on suspicion of causing the vandalism.
Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed a tire puncturing or who may have seen someone suspicious tampering with vehicles Monday to call Officer Calvin Delaries of the Kona Patrol at 326-4646 or the police non-emergency number at 935-3311.
