A Puna woman is set to appear in Hilo District Court on charges related to a vehicle theft that occurred in the parking lot of Banyan Drive condominium earlier this month.
Twenty-six-year-old Kalannie Ada was charged with second-degree theft, second-degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, habitual property crime. Offenses stem from an incident that occurred on Jan. 6 where prosecutors allege Ada stole a Honda CRV from a parking lot.
The most serious offenses, second-degree theft and habitual property crime, are both class C felonies and carry a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
A review of court records indicate that at the time of the alleged offenses, Ada was pending two unrelated felony cases in Hilo Circuit Court.
Ada remains in custody in lieu of $21,000 bail pending her initial appearance today in Hilo District Court.
