Man who burglarized Big Isle hotel room, stole SUV caught on video


    A screenshot of surveillance video showed a suspect in a burglary and stolen vehicle investigation on Hawaii island.

The Hawaii Police Department is seeking help from the public in identifying a man wanted in connection with a hotel room burglary and stolen vehicle in Kona.

On Aug. 16, between 3:30 a.m. and 4:20 a.m., an unidentified male entered an occupied hotel room in the 75-6000 block of Alii Drive, and removed several items including two cellular telephones, a pack of cigarettes and a set of keys for a rental vehicle. The rental vehicle, a silver-colored 2017 Nissan Rogue, was then stolen from the hotel’s parking structure.

Police located the stolen vehicle, parked and unoccupied, a week later in the Kealakehe area of Kookoolau Street and Ohelakai Place.

Upon reviewing video surveillance footage, an unidentified male was observed making attempts to enter into a separate locked structure on the same hotel property, which police declined to name. This same male is also observed leaving the parking structure in the stolen vehicle.

The suspect in the video surveillance images has a dark complexion and is wearing a light-colored, button-down, short-sleeved shirt, medium to dark colored pants, baseball cap and a dark colored waist bag strapped around his waist.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Det. Carrie Akina, or the police department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.
