Devin Saragosa-Taoy

A Puna man wanted on three outstanding warrants is now facing a slew of charges in connection to property crimes committed in the Hawaiian Paradise Park area in September.

Thirty-year-old Devin Saragosa-Taoy was taken into custody on Nov. 5, by Hawaiʻi Police’s Puna Community Policing Section after he was found at a residence in Hawaiian Paradise Park.

Saragosa-Taoy appeared in Hilo District Court before Judge Jeffrey Hawk on first-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespass and two counts of habitual property crimes. The defense’s request for supervised release or a bail reduction was denied.

The 30-year-old remained in custody in lieu of $46,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 10.
