At 5:16 p.m. May 3, a 38-year-old Hilo woman reported that her home in the upper Ainaola Drive area had been entered and several items had been removed.

Police received information that some of the items were sold to secondhand dealers in the Hilo area. Police were able to recover some of the stolen property, which led to Yanagawa’s arrest.
