A 54-year-old fisherman found unresponsive Tuesday evening on the North Shore has been identified as Nathan A. Caraulia of Wahiawa.
An autopsy is expected to be performed to determine the exact cause of death, according to the Honolulu Medical Examiner’s Office.
Caraulia failed to return to shore after he was last seen leaving Haleiwa Beach Park heading toward Kaena Point at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Honolulu Fire Department spokesman Capt. David Jenkins said an unmanned kayak equipped with fishing gear was found adrift off of Aweoweo Beach Park in Waialua.
Firefighters responded and searched the shoreline. They found Caraulia unconscious and without a pulse near the shore at Kaiaka Bay at about 8:10 p.m. Emergency Medical Services arrived and pronounced him dead.
Woman arrested over forged checks
Police arrested a woman, 23, after she allegedly cashed or tried to cash forged checks at three different institutions in the Honolulu area.
The thefts occurred between June 19 and Sunday.
Police arrested the woman Wednesday on suspicion of forgery, unauthorized possession of confidential personal information, identity theft and theft.
Suspect charged with unauthorized entry
A 24-year-old man has been charged with breaking into a North Shore residence.
Keveon Gomera was charged Wednesday with second-degree unauthorized entry into a dwelling. His bail was set at $11,000.
At about 9 p.m. Monday, police said, a 28-year-old woman was asleep in her home in Haleiwa when she woke up to find a man later identified as Gomera sitting beside her.
The woman screamed and Gomera ran off. Court records said the victim’s roommate also was home at the time.
A day later the roommate saw Gomera at an area grocery store. Police were called, and Gomera was arrested near the victim’s residence early Wednesday.
