Hawaii island police have charged a 28-year-old Kona man with breaking into a motor vehicle at a parking lot in downtown Kailua-Kona on Tuesday.

According to police, the victim, a 37-year-old Holualoa woman, had placed personal belongings into a public storage rack at the entrance of the Kailua Pier while she went swimming. When she returned, she noticed that several items -- including her vehicle key and key fob -- were missing. She then returned to her vehicle and found that it had been entered and that property contained within had been removed.

Police officers were able to identify a suspect seen in the area as Travis Ray Maunakea Sanders.

Officers located and arrested Sanders on Wednesday. During a search of backpack that Sanders was carrying, officers found several items belonging to the victim as well as illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Sanders was charged Friday with unlawful entry into a motor vehicle, two counts of third-degree theft, theft of a credit card, unauthorized possession of confidential information, two counts of third-degree promoting a dangerous drug, and two counts of drug paraphernalia. His aggregate bail was set at $75,000. His initial court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
