Hawaii County police have charged a 30-year-old Hilo man with burglary after he was allegedly caught on surveillance video breaking into the victim’s house and removing items.

According to police, the video shows a suspect, believed to be Justin Fergerstrom, of breaking into the South Wilder Road house several times during a four-hour period and removing fishing gear, car parts, power tools and other items valued at more than $1,700.

Police arrested Fergerstrom on Thursday morning. He was charged today with three counts of first-degree burglary and one count of unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle.

Fergerstrom is being held in lieu of $85,000 aggregate bail. His initial court appearance is set for Monday.
