Police Arrest Second Suspect in Puna Home Invasion
A second man has been located and arrested in connection with a July 24 home-invasion robbery in Puna.
Police arrested Kawika Benny Kahee at a home in the Hawaiian Beaches subdivision shortly after noon Thursday.
Based on a grand-jury indictment, Kahee was charged with second-degree robbery, third-degree assault, theft, promoting a dangerous drug and possession of drug paraphernalia.
His bail on those offenses and an additional charge of contempt of court was set at $59,000.
He was also arrested and charged with two counts of violating probation which carried a no-bail provision.
Kahee was one of three men who allegedly used force against the resident of a home in Leilani Estates and stole items from her.
Both Kahee and Mark McCurley, a co-defendant in the case, were initially arrested and charged in August with offenses related to the July incident but were released before a preliminary hearing was held. The latest arrests occurred after the case was taken before a grand jury.
McCurry was arrested and charged earlier this week.
The third suspect in the case has not been identified and is still at large.
