Media Release

The most recent edition of the Crime Stoppers television program “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted’ highlights a 25-year-old man wanted for auto theft and a 31-year-old man wanted for escape.

The new episode begins airing Friday, September 9.

In it, police ask for the public’s help in locating 25-year-old Brendan Isaac Therriault, who is wanted  for an auto theft from a Kailua-Kona home in June. He is described as 6-feet tall, 180 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair.

The television program also renews the Police Department’s request for help in locating 31-year-old Sky Kamai Lewis of Kona, who is wanted for escape. Lewis failed to return to the Hale Nani community-based program on March 30 after violating terms of an extended work furlough in Kona. He is described as Hawaiian, 5-foot-8, 175 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

Police ask that anyone with information about any of these cases call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential. Crime Stoppers does not tape record phone calls or subscribe to caller ID.

In this latest edition of “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted,” which was prerecorded, Officer Patrick Menino also asks for help in locating 35-year-old Eddie Poai of Hilo, who was wanted on a $1,000 bench. Police have located and arrested him and no longer need the public’s assistance with that case.

“Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted” is a project of Crime Stoppers Hilo, Inc., which is a partnership of the business community, the media and the police. It was inspired by the national TV show, “America’s Most Wanted.” The program airs on Na Leo O Hawaiʻi Community Television Channel 54 on Sundays at 5 p.m. and Fridays at 5:30 p.m. It also airs intermittently on Channel 53.
