Hawaiʻi Island police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects wanted in connection with a theft from a business in Keaʻau.
Between 10:15 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. on November 24, two unknown suspects entered a papaya farm warehouse on Milo Street and stole a utility trailer and a porta-potty. Police later recovered the porta-potty. The utility trailer, which has still not been recovered, is described as a black rear-loading ATV trailer.
Both of the suspect’s images were captured on surveillance video. One suspect was wearing shorts with a long-sleeved shirt and a baseball cap with an attached headlamp. The other was seen riding an ATV on the property and wearing long pants with a hooded jacket.
Police ask anyone with any information about this case, the location of the trailer or the identity of the persons in the photos to call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 or Officer Shea Nactor at 965-2716.
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.
