Hawai‘i Island police have arrested 23-year-old Donchevell Makekau of Kailua-Kona for multiple property crime offenses stemming from several criminal property damage incidents reported in downtown Hilo.

In the early morning hours of Friday, January 15, 2021, South Hilo patrol officers responded to a business in the 100 block of Kalakaua Street, where the owner reported an unknown person had thrown a rock at the business, damaging a window. Officers conducted checks in the area and located four additional businesses with damaged windows in the downtown Hilo area. During the investigation video surveillance captured Makekau throwing rocks at one of the businesses.

At 0210 p.m. on January 15, Makekau was located and arrested by South Hilo patrol officers for an outstanding warrant and remains in police custody while the investigation continues.

Police want to remind the public that in light of Governor David Ige’s current COVID-19 Emergency Proclamation, there are enhanced penalties for certain offenses. These offenses include, but are not limited to, burglary, theft, criminal property damage, and robbery.
