Hawaiʻi Island police have arrested and charged a man in connection with a burglary in Hilo last year at a gymnasium on Shipman Street in Hilo.

On October 18, a 42-inch Hisense brand flat-screen television was removed from a gym on Shipman Street in Hilo.

Thursday (May 14), South Hilo Patrol officers arrested 20-year-old Kaipo Anakalea Kahakai of Hilo for contempt of court and for an unrelated burglary Monday (May 11) on Ponahawai Street in Hilo.

He was taken to the Hilo police cellblock, where detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section also linked him to the gym burglary.

He was charged with contempt of court, two counts of burglary, three counts of theft and unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle. His bail was set at $7,050.

He remained at the cellblock until his initial court appearance on Friday (May 15).
