Authorities are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying suspects captured on surveillance video during a burglary at a storage business in Puna.

Hawai‘i Police Department’s Puna patrol officers responded to the incident on Feb. 18 at 1:30 p.m. at the 15-1500 block of 13th Avenue in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision. When officers arrived on scene, they made contact with the owner who reported that two of the storage units had been forcefully opened and the surveillance system tampered with.

Officers investigating the incident were able to retrieve surveillance footage, which shows three male suspects entering and exiting the business by squeezing through the locked front gate. The suspects are depicted above.

Police ask anyone with information about this Burglary to contact Officer Alipate Moleni at 808-965-2716 or call the police department’s non-emergency line at 808-935-3311.

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call the island-wide Crime Stoppers number at 961-8300 and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
