Media Release

Stolen kayaks led to the arrest of a Hilo man for two burglaries within a week.

On Friday (May 30), a 38-year old Hilo man reported that two kayaks had been stolen from a patio attached to his Komohana Street home.

South Hilo Patrol officers located and arrested 18-year old Keenan Acia of Hilo, and recovered the stolen kayaks.

At the same time, Keenan was arrested in connection with an unrelated burglary on May 24. In that case, a 67-year-old Hilo man reported that a cell phone, digital camera, purse and prescription medications had been removed from his house.

Keenan was held at the Hilo Police cellblock while detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continued both investigations.

At 7:25 p.m. Saturday (May 31), Keenan was charged with two counts of first-degree burglary and one count each of second-degree theft, third-degree theft and fourth-degree theft. His bail was set at $12,750.

He remained at the cellblock pending his initial court appearance scheduled for Monday.
