Two arrested and charged in connection with alleged Kona burglary
Two East Hawai‘i residents face multiple charges in connection with an alleged burglary in West Hawai‘i.
The incident was reported at 3 p.m. Sunday at a residence in the 73-1000 block of Ahulani Street of Kailua-Kona. Responding Hawai‘i Police Department officers determined that earlier in the day unknown suspects stole multiple items, including electronic items and credit cards.
Kona patrol officers identified 27-year-old Destanyie Calicdan of Hilo and 31-year-old Troy Canda-Raigumai of Kea‘au after both individuals were observed using the victim’s stolen credit cards to make numerous unauthorized purchases from at least five businesses in the Kailua-Kona area.
On Monday, patrol officers located Canda-Raigumai and Calicdan on Ali‘i Drive in Kailua-Kona and subsequently arrested the pair and impounded their black Honda Civic coupe. Detectives with the Police Department’s Area II Criminal Investigation Section continued the investigation and recovered the victim’s electronic items and several stolen credit cards.
After conferring with the county prosecutors office, detectives charged Calicdan with four counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, two counts of second-degree theft, two counts of third-degree theft and one count of unauthorized possession of confidential personal information.
Canda-Raigumai was charged with three counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, one count of second-degree theft, one count of third-degree theft, one count of fourth-degree theft, one count of unauthorized possession of confidential personal information and one count of habitual property crime.
Bail for both was set at $10,000.
