A 30-year-old Hilo man has been charged with burglary after a surveillance camera captured images of him entering a home several times in the same day.

Police said the surveillance system showed Justin Fergerstrom entering the home on South Wilder Road in Kaumana three times during a four-hour period Wednesday.

Items removed during the numerous takes included fishing gear, car parts and power tools. The stolen items had a value of more than $1,700.

Fergerstrom was arrested Thursday morning and charged today with three counts of burglary and one count of breaking into a vehicle.

His bail was set at $85,000.
