Men appear in court for allegedly breaking into home tented for fumigation

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

Two men appeared in Honolulu District Court today for allegedly trying to burglarize a Lusitana Street home that was tented for fumigation.

Joshua Yoshimura, 25, and James Malgana, 21, appeared Friday morning after both were charged Thursday with first-degree burglary and were held Friday night at Oahu Correctional Community Center, unable to post bail. Yoshimura’s bail was $20,000, and Malgana’s was $11,000.

Responding officers found Malgana leaving with property from the house about 3 a.m. Wednesday, police said. His companion, Yoshimura, allegedly refused police commands to leave the tented house.

The Honolulu Fire Department hazardous materials team and the fumigation company vented the home. Officers went in the home when it was safe, about 6:15 a.m., and found Yoshimura hiding in a bedroom, police said. Paramedics took both men to the hospital for examination.
