Big Island police have charged a 23-year-old Kailua-Kona man in connection with a burglary in Kona.

At 3:55 a.m. Tuesday (September 9) patrol officers responded to a report of an in-progress burglary at a condominium complex located at the 5800 block of Alii Drive in Kailua-Kona. The resident manager of the complex reported hearing noises coming from its locked laundry facility.

Responding officers arriving at the condominium complex observed a man carrying a backpack fleeing from the laundry facility. After a short foot pursuit officers apprehended and arrested Ian Medeiros of Kailua-Kona.
