A Hilo man is facing various charges including habitual property in connection to two daytime thefts at Hilo businesses.

Twenty-eight-year-old Quinten Ikaika Pili was wanted on an outstanding warrant at the time of his arrest. He is currently charged with first-degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, first-degree theft, two counts of habitual property crime and two counts of fourth-degree theft.

“Today’s charges reflect Hawai‘i Island law enforcement’s ongoing efforts to hold repeat property offenders and thieves accountable for crimes committed during the pandemic. We share in the community’s concerns about the seriousness of these offenses and will strive to make our community a safer and better place to live,” said Prosecuting Attorney Kelden Waltjen.

Charges stem from business thefts that occurred on April 14. Pili remains in custody in lieu of $57,000 bail.
