Twenty-five-year-old Alan C. Minamishin of Kailua-Kona has been charged with numerous offenses following a burglary that reportedly took place in Kailua-Kona on Wednesday.

Authorities say that between 5:45 a.m. and 7:33 a.m. on Wednesday, a laptop and checkbook were removed from a home on the 77-6400 Block of Princess Ke’elikolani Drive.

The checkbook that was removed was later located by a neighbor and returned to the victim.

An investigation by police led to the identity of the suspect as Minamishin. He was arrested several hours later with the laptop in his possession.

According to HPD, Minamishin was taken to the Kona police cellblock as detectives from the Area II Criminal Investigations Section continued to investigate.
