Three suspects charged in connection with burglaries in Alii Drive condos

Hawaii County police said an ID left in a condominium apartment led to the arrest of two men and a woman who were charged over the weekend with burglary and drug offenses.

Kona police began investigating after three units at a condominium on Alii Drive in Kailua-Kona were burglarized Friday.

In one of the units, police fund items from one of the other units, along with drug paraphernalia and identification belonging to Sarah Duarte of Kailua-Kona, who didn’t live in the condo.

While police were still at the scene, Duarte , 19, returned in a pickup truck driven by Scott Anderson, 43, of Kailua-Kona. Vice officers obtained a search warrant for the truck and found drugs, paraphernalia and weapons. Anderson was arrested on suspicion of drug and weapons offenses and arrested and charged on a bench warrant for failure to appear in court.

Police arrested Duarte and Chauncey Chow, 23, of Kailua-Kona after learning that they had been staying in the condo without permission.

On Saturday, police charged Anderson with carrying a deadly weapon, violating terms of supervised release, second-degree meth trafficking, three counts of promoting a dangerous drug and three counts of possessing drug paraphernalia. His bail is $136,300.

Chow and Duarte were each charged Saturday with promoting a dangerous drug, promoting a detrimental drug and possessing drug paraphernalia. On Sunday, Chow was also charged with three counts of burglary. Chow’s bail is $96,000. Duarte’s bail was set at $4,500. Police are continuing an investigation into additional burglary charges against Duarte.
