The Hawaiʻi Police Department is requesting the public’s assistance with identifying two suspects responsible for a theft which occurred at a large retail store in Kailua-Kona.

At approximately noon on Aug. 11, 2019, three unidentified parties entered the store located Olowalu Street in Kailua-Kona. The unidentified parties were observed filling a tote with miscellaneous tools and exiting through the front entrance doors without rendering payment for the items. The parties were then observed entering a light green in color Kia Soul bearing unknown license plates and leaving the area. The total estimated value of all items removed is $1,442.92.

The first male party was described as a local male, approximately 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet-tall with a husky build, bald head, a goatee chin strap style beard and a medium complexion. He was last observed wearing a long sleeve camouflage shirt, dark-colored shorts and grey sneakers. This party appears to have a tattoo on his lower right shin.


The second suspect was described as a local male approximately 6 feet to 6 feet, 2inches with a slender/medium build, short black hair, a chin strap style beard and a light brown complexion. He was last observed wearing a dark-colored polo type shirt, dark-colored shorts and black shoes. He also has a “word” tattoo on his outer right forearm.
