A Hilo woman was charged with operating a stolen vehicle after she and a passenger were found using it at a fuel pump.

Hawaii island police on Thursday arrested Donna Tyau Rasay, 34, and Devin Lloyd Saragosa-Taoy, 28, who were seated in the stolen vehicle at a Pahoa fuel pump. Police saw the vehicle and found that it had been reported stolen on March 7 in a burglary on Paradise Ala Kai Drive in Hawaiian Paradise Park.

Rasay was seated in the driver’s seat and was arrested for unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and three outstanding bench warrants, and she is currently in police custody in lieu of a $5,000 bail.
