Media Release

A Captain Cook man is in police custody after being charged with 21 offenses for an assortment of crimes in the Kona District in December and January.

On December 26, it was reported that two men broke into a limousine and taxi rental service on Hulikoa Street in Kailua-Kona at around 2:30 a.m. and stole keys to three taxi vans, along with a cellular telephone, office equipment and cash. One taxi was damaged and two were removed from the property.

Investigation led to the identity of one of the suspects as 30-year-old Douglas Daniel Kaimiola, also known as “Oni.” Police began searching for him.

On Sunday (January 11) police received an anonymous tip that led to Kaimiola’s arrest at a home in Hōnaunau for a no-bail warrant for furlough violation and for discharge of sureties and two counts of contempt of court. His bail on the latter three counts was set at $2,750. He was taken to the Kona police cellblock.

At 8 a.m. Monday (January 12), detectives from the Area II Criminal Investigations Section arrested Kaimiola at the cellblock on suspicion of burglary and unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle before he was taken to court for the earlier charges.

After court, Kaimiola was returned to the cellblock while detectives continued investigating the new charges. Their investigation linked him to additional crimes in the Kona District between December 18 and January 10.

At 7:45 a.m. Wednesday (January 14), Kaimiola was charged with two counts of burglary, five counts of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, two counts of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, three counts of theft, two counts of theft/forgery of a credit card, two counts of unauthorized possession of confidential information and a firearm offense.

His bail on those charges was set at $178,000. He remains at the cellblock pending his initial court appearance on those charges scheduled for Thursday (January 15).
