The Hawai‘i Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance in locating jewelry stolen from Kamuela

On Dec. 31, 2018, at approximately 3:33 p.m., South Kohala Patrol officers responded to a reported burglary that occurred in the 66-1700 block of Kawaihae Road in Kamuela. The victim reported that he had left his residence earlier in the day and upon returning home, he observed an adult female, who was unknown to him, exiting his residence. Upon conducting checks within his home, he discovered that multiple jewelry pieces were removed without his permission.
