by Thunda

Hawai‘i Island police are requesting the public’s assistance in locating 29-year-old Adam Krilla, who is a person of interest in three criminal investigations, including two auto theft cases and a burglary.

Kona patrol officers arrested and charged Krilla last week with auto theft and drug offenses after police observed him driving a stolen vehicle. ( His initial court appearance in that case was on Tuesday, January 16, 2024, at which time the court granted him supervised release.

On Saturday, January 20, officers responded to a property in the 78-7000 block of Māmalahoa Highway in Hōlualoa, for an active trespassing. While at the scene, officers observed Krilla in a vehicle on the property, however at the time of the call the car had not been reported stolen. 

Later the same day, a victim reported that the vehicle Krilla had been seen in earlier that day was stolen from a different property in the 78-7000 block of Māmalahoa Highway. Another vehicle was also reported stolen in the same area.

Krilla is also a person of interest in a burglary that occurred on Sunday, January 21, in the 78-6600 block of Māmalahoa Highway.

Krilla has no permanent address and is known to frequent the Kona and Hōlualoa areas. He was last seen on Monday, January 22, near the Ali‘i Drive and Queen Kalama intersection.

He is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, 155 pounds, with short brown hair and brown eyes.
