Man charged in auto thefts
Police have arrested a 25-year-old Puna man and charged him for a burglary and two auto thefts in Puna.
At 2:10 p.m. Monday, police responded to a report of a burglary in the Ainaloa subdivision. A 51-year-old woman was home when an unknown man reportedly entered her Hilonani Street home and removed a gallon of milk.
Responding officers found the suspect nearby in the bushes.
Lake Charles Kalei Lively of Pahoa was arrested and found to be in possession of hydrocodone and marijuana, police said. He was held at the Hilo police cellblock while detectives investigated.
On Tuesday, Lively was charged with burglary, theft, promoting a harmful drug and marijuana possession. He was also charged with auto theft in an unrelated case.
In that case, an Acura Integra was reported as stolen from a property in Kurtistown either June 25 or 26.
Bail for the above offenses was set at $38,000.
After Lively reported to court for those offenses on Wednesday, he was arrested and charged with another count of auto theft.
In that case, a Honda Civic was stolen from the parking lot of a business in Kurtistown and found behind a vacant house in Kurtistown. Bail for that offense was set at $10,000. Lively was taken to Hawaii Community Correctional Center pending his initial court appearance on that offense.
