Police Seeking Public’s Assistance in Identifying Burglary Suspect

by Thunda

Hawaii Island Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a burglary suspect. 

On May 30, 2024, at approximately 1:25 am, South Kohala Patrol Officers responded to a burglary alarm at a Kamuela convenience store on Mamalahoa Highway.  Upon arrival, Officers discovered a broken glass window.  During the course of their investigation, they learned that several electronic smoking devices, commonly known as “E-cigarettes” had been stolen from within the business.  Upon reviewing video footage, the suspect can be seen entering the parking lot on a blue bicycle.  Shortly after arriving, the suspect, while clenching a hammer in their left hand is seen smashing the window.  The suspect then enters the store through the broken window, removes the items from a display, exits through the broken window, then flees on the bicycle toward Mamalahoa Highway. 

The suspect, who is approximately 5-feet tall and 100 pounds is described as wearing a green head cover, dark-colored face covering, a black long-sleeved sweater, long black pants, black shoes, dark-colored gloves, while carrying a black back pack.  The suspect, whose brown hair can be seen in a “bun”, is believed to be a “left-handed” female.

Police ask anyone with information to call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at (808) 935-3311 or email Officer Jessica Cook at
