Hawaii island police are asking for the public’s help finding the thieves who stole an excavator from the Waikoloa area on Saturday.

The excavator is valued at about $35,000.

South Kohala patrol officers responding to a reported theft at about 7 a.m. Saturday determined that unknown suspects removed a 2008 yellow and black CAT 303CR Mini Excavator from an agricultural lot near the 9-mile marker on Highway 190 sometime between 9 a.m. on Friday and 7 a.m. on Saturday.

The excavator has a decal with the letters “T & B” in white-colored lettering on a black-colored background.

Anyone with any information regarding the theft or the whereabouts of the stolen excavator should contact Officer Kuilee Dela Cruz of the South Kohala Patrol Division at Kuilee.DelaCruz@hawaiicounty.gov or 887-3080 or the department’s non-emergency number at 935-3311.

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call the islandwide Crime Stoppers number at 961-8300 and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
