A Kona woman was granted supervised release after reportedly breaking into a Hōlualoa home and taking electronics and medical marijuana. Her suspected accomplice in the break-in is at large.

Latasha Cagampang, 24, appeared before 3rd District Court Judge Kimberly Tsuchiya on Tuesday for the following offenses:

  • First-degree burglary
  • First-degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle (car break-in)
  • Fourth-degree theft
  • Second-degree promotion of a detrimental drug

Charges stem from an incident that occurred on Sunday. According to Hawai‘i Island police, a 56-year-old woman reported a break-in at her home on the 78-6600 block of Māmalahoa Highway after returning from a walk.

The woman told police she found suspect(s) had entered through the back door of her residence and several items were missing, including an Apple iPad, miscellaneous Milwaukee power tools, and two jars of medical marijuana.


A 24-year-old Kona woman was arrested and charged with burglary, theft, and drug offenses after police located her in the general area of a reported burglary in possession of items that appeared to belong to the victim.

Officers responding to the scene saw a man, later identified as 29-year-old Adam Krilla, “ditching” a moped. Officers recognized Krilla, who then ran on foot into the bushes near the 78-7000 block of Walua Road in Kailua-Kona.

Police also recognized a woman seen running behind Krilla, as Cagampang.


Officers searched the area where the 24-year-old was found near some Milwaukee power tools.

“She was observed holding a large canvas bag that appeared to have an Apple iPad and several glass jars of marijuana [145 grams] in it, matching the description of the victim’s stolen items,” police stated in a press release Wednesday.

The large canvas bag and an additional bag in her possession were seized as evidence for search warrant purposes as the investigation was continued by Hawai‘i Police Department’s Area II Criminal Investigation Section. Additional items belonging to the victim were found.


Cagampang was booked into jail on $16,100 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 13.

An all-points bulletin was generated for Krilla and the department issued a media release asking the public’s assistance in locating him.

Anyone with information about this investigation and/or Krilla’s whereabouts is encouraged to call the police department’s non-emergency number at 808-935-3311. They may also contact Acting Detective Joel Furuto at 808-326-4646, ext. 262; or at [email protected].
