Big Island police investigate theft of solar panels from FAA facility

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

 

Big Island police are investigating the theft of large solar panels from a Federal Aviation Administration navigation facility in Puna.

The facility is located on Highway 130 just past the 7-mile marker in the vicinity of Makuu Farm Lots. It is one of several in Hawaiʻi that send signals to commercial airlines flying in the Pacific Region.

Sometime between Sept. 13 and Sept. 17, unknown persons stole 12 panels and damaged two.

Between Sunday and Thursday , the thieves used a vehicle to ram the front gate and remove 10 additional panels.

Police ask that anyone with information about these cases call officer Matthew Bartz at 965-2716 or the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.
