Police investigating burglary which occured during storm


Hawaiʻi Island police are asking for the public’s help in providing information about a burglary at the Hawaiian Shores Community Association’s warehouse in August.

On August 22, unknown persons removed a yellow Durostar Generator model DS4000S and a Stihl 14-inch chainsaw. The generator belonged to the Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense Agency and was on loan during the Hurricane Iselle emergency.

Police ask anyone who may have witnessed the burglary or who has information about any suspects to call the Police Department’s non-emergency number at 935-3311 or Officer Daniel Murray 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. Crime Stoppers is a volunteer program run by ordinary citizens who want to keep their community safe. Crime Stoppers doesn’t record calls or subscribe to caller ID. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
