Hawaiʻi Island police have arrested an inmate at Hawaiʻi Community Correctional Center in connection with a burglary last year at a business in Kurtistown.

On July 31, 2014, someone entered a flower warehouse on North Ala Road and removed various items.

Police investigation linked the burglary to 22-year-old Luke Kaniaupio, who had been sentenced to jail in January for unrelated crimes.

He was arrested Thursday (May 15) and charged with second-degree burglary. His bail was set at $2,000. He was returned to HCCC pending his initial court appearance on the new offense, which was scheduled for Friday (May 15).

    Don’t believe all you read. Police have been reported to by local residents , in the Tiki Gardens subdivision (Big Island), ad vomitum, about drug dealer suspects on Silversword, and Paradise ct. They refuse to even investigate, and one resident says they cover for these parasites. Your taxes at work.
    Every time a tragedy occurs, consider yourself guilty for not applying pressure to local and federal gov. Meanwhile. Homes will continue to be burglarized, children will be addicted, and more tragedies will occur. Focus for a moment, jot these details, and realize where the problem is.
