Hawaiʻi Island police have located 50-year-old William Chase of Kurtistown, who was wanted for an incident in Kurtistown last week.

Chase was arrested at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday (August 11) on suspicion of burglary and four counts of terroristic threatening.

He was taken to the Hilo police cellblock while detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continue the investigation.
