Police are asking for the public’s help finding two men wanted on outstanding warrants in unrelated cases.

Adrien Haena Kalani, 49, is wanted for promoting a dangerous drug, possessing drug paraphernalia and contempt of court. He is also wanted for questioning in connection with an assault and an auto theft.

Kalani is about 6-foot-2 and 300 pounds, with short black-and-gray hair and brown eyes. Police said the former South Kohala man has no permanent address.

The other man, 38-year-old Mark Wirth, is wanted on bench warrants for bail-jumping and contempt of court.

Wirth is 6-feet tall, 170 pounds, with short blond hair and blue eyes. He has no permanent address but may be in the Hilo area.

Police are cautioning the public not to contact or approach either man. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to call the department’s non-emergency number at 935-3311.

Tipsters who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181, and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

Crime Stoppers is a volunteer program run by citizens who want to keep their community safe. Crime Stoppers doesn’t record calls or subscribe to caller ID, and all Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
