Police look for Hilo man in connection with Puna burglary


Hawaii island police are looking for an 18-year-old Hilo man in connection with a burglary in Puna on Thursday.

The neighbor confronted the man, who ran toward another residence and into some bushes.

On Friday, police asked the public’s assistance in locating the man, who is described as 5 feet 5 inches tall, weighing 135 pounds, with short brown hair, a tan complexion and a light mustache.
