Hawaii County police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect captured on camera in January during a burglary at an Ainaloa subdivision home in Puna.

About 7:30 a.m. Jan. 7, patrol officers responded to a report of suspicious activity at the house on Hanalei Drive.

Three individuals were observed in the area. Police arrested two Pahoa men on suspicion of first-degree burglary. They were later released pending further investigation.

The third man fled on foot. He is described as an adult male possibly in his early 20s with dark brown skin, black hair and a medium to heavy-set build. He was wearing a red shirt, beige shorts, a black cap and slippers. Police recovered a video and still image of the suspect taken as he left the area.

Police ask that anyone with information on his identity contact Detective Robert Almeida by phone at 961-2386 or by email at ralmeida@co.hawaii.hi.us. Tipsters may call CrimeStoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona.
