Police are looking for a 23-year-old man who is wanted for questioning in the robbery Wednesday (December 31, 2003) of the Kona branch of CitiFinancial in the Kopiko Plaza.
The suspect was identified as Chet Fallwind of Kailua-Kona. Fallwind is described as being a Caucasian, being 5-foot-9 in height, weighing about 109 pounds and having brown eyes.
Responding to a 1:59 p.m. robbery call, Kona patrol officers determined that a male entered the financial office and presented the teller with a note demanding money. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the robber then fled on foot towards Palani Road. Witnesses said they saw no weapon, and no one was injured in the robbery.
Police are asking anyone with information about the robbery or the whereabouts of Fallwind to call the West Hawaii Criminal Investigation Section at 326-4207 or the police non-emergency number at 935-3311.
Those who wish to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. The numbers are answered 24 hours a day. Callers will be given a coded number and their identity will remain anonymous. Callers may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if their call leads to an arrest, indictment or the recovery of property. Crime Stoppers neither subscribes to “Caller ID,” nor does it record phone calls.
