Authorities filed charges against two men were for the attempted robbery of a Waikele jewelry store on April 9 in which a camera caught two men using a hammer and a shotgun on merchandise cases. The men failed to open the cases and fled in a stolen car that was later found burning in Waipahu.

Trey Akana-Pulido, 21, who allegedly is one of the men in video, was charged Friday with first-degree robbery, first-degree arson, and two weapons offenses. Police said Akana-Pulido burned the car used in the robbery. Bail was set at $150,000.

Karl Acosta, 46, the alleged getaway driver, was charged with first-degree robbery and remained at the police cellblock on $50,000 bail.

A 19-year-old Waipahu woman who police said was in the vehicle when the robbery attempt occurred at Zales was released without charge.

Mark Ahnee, killed April 14 in a shootout with police, was the second man in the video firing a shotgun at the jewelry cases, police said.
