Two men sought in theft investigation



Police are seeking the public’s assistance with identifying two men they say were recently captured on video surveillance making charges on stolen credit cards at a Hilo business.

The incident stems from a motor vehicle break-in that occurred March 11 near Onomea Bay in Papaikou. Officers responded at 12:45 p.m. on a report that multiple vehicles had been broken into, with several items taken.

The stolen items included backpacks, purses, wallets, personal identification cards, credit cards, a MacBook computer, an Apple iPhone, two Apple iPads and articles of clothing.

One of the stolen credit cards was used at a retail store in Hilo, police said, and video surveillance captured the users, police said. Both are described as men in their 20s with brown hair. One has a Mohawk-style haircut.

Anyone with information regarding the investigation is asked to call the police nonemergency number at 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 961-8300.
