The public’s help is being sought by the Hawai’i Police Department in identifying two suspects for their involvement in a Kea’au business theft.

Authorities say the incident took place between 10:15 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. on Nov. 24. During the theft, two unknown individuals entered the warehouse of a papaya farm on Milo Street and stole a utility trailer and a porta-potty.

The porta-potty was later recovered by police, but the utility trailer, described as a black rear-loading ATV trailer, has not been found.

Police say the suspects were captured on surveillance video. One of the individuals was seen riding an ATV on the property and wearing long pants with a hooded jacket.

Anyone with information regarding the case, the location of the trailer, or the identity of the individuals pictured in the photos should get in contact with HPD by calling Officer Shea Nactor directly at 965-2716 or the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.


Those whose preference is to remain anonymous should call the Big Island Crime Stoppers number at 961-8300.


The Nov. 24 incident was the second burglary in the Milo Street portion of Kea’au in a one-week span. On Nov. 22, a suspect entered a Milo Street warehouse and removed farm equipment items, as well as gasoline from several business vehicles. It is unclear whether or not the two incident are related.
