‘Hawai’i Island’s Most Wanted’ Suspect Arrested
The Hawai’i Police Department has located a Kurtistown man who was wanted for violating terms of release on bail in a terroristic threatening case.
Twenty-eight-year-old Isaac Kamalii, who is being featured on “Hawai’i Island’s Most Wanted,” was also wanted for reckless endangering and for questioning in connection with vehicle break-ins and thefts of vehicles.
Police received a tip from the public that led a joint task force consisting of officers from the Hawai’i Police Department and sheriff’s deputies from the Department of Public Safety to a home on Pilipa’a Street in the Pana’ewa area of Hilo on Monday morning. When officers arrived, Kamalii fled on foot. He was arrested a little while later on Kilauea Avenue, about a quarter-mile away from the house.
Kamalii was arrested and charged on a no-bail warrant for violating terms of release on bail. He was also arrested on suspicion of reckless endangering, three counts of reckless driving, three counts of resisting an order to stop, and two counts of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle.
Police took Kamalii to the Hilo police cellblock while they continue to investigate into those other offenses.
During the same time, three other men at the house were also arrested.
Alfred Keahulihau, 42, of Hilo was arrested by officers. He was charged on a bench warrant for contempt of court. His bail of $300 was posted and he was released.
Police arrested Alston Maluo, 40, of Hilo and charged him on a no-bail bench warrant for violating terms of supervised release. He was taken to Circuit Court later on Monday.
Keola Akui, 32, of Hilo was arrested by officers on suspicion of assault. He remains at the cellblock pending further investigation.
