10 firearms, 4K ammunition taken during armed home invasion

KAILUA-KONA — Police are on the lookout for two men who allegedly brandished a firearm on a Puna couple and made them open a safe before fleeing with cash, a truck, 10 firearms and 4,000 rounds of ammunition.

Hawaii Police Department officers responded around 4 a.m. to a residence in the Orchidland Estates subdivision to learn that two masked men, each brandishing a firearm, had broken into the home and confronted the couple as they were asleep.

According to police, one of the men demanded they open a safe, which was in another room of the residence. After the safe was opened, the suspects took the 10 firearms and U.S. currency from within and fled the scene in the victims’ white 2012 Toyota Tundra bearing Hawaii license plates ZEN-009. The truck may have damage to its front and roof resulting from the suspects striking the garage door and front gate to the home as they left.

The suspects were described as sounding “local” and being between 5 feet, 5 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall. One was about 150 pounds and the other about 225 pounds. They were last seen wearing black coats, dark pants and hats.

Neither victim suffered any physical injuries during the incident.

Among the firearms taken were several semi-automatic pistols, shotguns, high-powered rifles and a 7 mm rifle. Also taken was approximately 4,000 rounds of live ammunition for the firearms.

The investigation is being conducted by detectives assigned to the department’s Criminal Investigation Section. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective BJ Sagon at 961-2375 or the department’s nonemergency number at 935-3311.

    How dare those people own firearms and exercise their rights? Those items were just too tempting to those innocent young men. it was not their fault, it was the evil firearm owners. Antifart will be along to verify that it was not the crime those innocent thieve committed, it was the existence of the owner and his insistence on his natural rights.

    The poor boys were just lured into it and must not be held to blame.

    Usual idiotic WHT reporting “4,000 rounds of live ammunition” “high-powered rifles and a 7 mm rifle.

    Luckily, it was not dead ammunition.

    Duh, a 7mm, if a rifle, is “high powered”, but to WHT reporters, a nerf gun is too. Must have had something painted black, those are known to have infinite power.

      Never seen an assault rifle in Hawaii, just some assault liberals assaulting the truth, common sense, freedom & everyone who don’t parrot socialist dogma talking points. (Only 4,000 rounds? They are packing light.) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0999ba7905660243edd6cd9eb3bb1c8b31cf8a84c964f02b124a0466df6af408.jpg

      Yep, perfectly correct what you stated in the opening sentences. You seem to realize the cause of the problem: Guns kill people.

      The rest is part of your old self and what the NRA planted into your gullible brain.

        People kill people Rebecca J. Liberals will use whatever to kill their enemies.

        YOU were the one advocating burying shooters in the landfill. Planning on using WHAT do do your killing?

        I have multiple ways of doing things, I am sure you can Google what those might be.

        Intent is everything, with hands, hammers, machetes, broom sticks, nun-chuks…………whatever works.

        People kill people, Rebecca J. Liberals will use whatever to kill
        their enemies, government, police, mobs, etc. Germany did that very
        well some decades back,

        Now the Antifart fascist groups are learning. It frustrates you endlessly that your enemies will not just give up.

        YOU
        were the one advocating burying shooters in the landfill. Planning on
        using WHAT do do your killing? Come on, YOU advocated killing your
        enemies, how did you intend to do it?

        Liberal government goons, millennial antifart wimps????

        I have multiple ways of doing some things, I am sure you can Google what those might be.

        Intent is everything, with hands, hammers, machetes, broom sticks, nun-chuks…………whatever works.

        Really “antiSMART”…..did the best part of you run down your mom’s leg at conception. Did you not read that they invaded the house? They are lucky they did not have one outside of the safe they would probably be dead. Sounds like an inside job.

    home invasions are one of the few legit reasons to want to own a handgun … but not having one handy and having all yours taken just adds to the pool of weapons criminals have 🙁 quick latch handgun safe is the win

      A wise man well versed in the use of firearms for defense once wrote:

      A handgun is to buy you time to get to your rifle or shotgun.

        Liar. You have never seen real combat. Changing bus tires in an airport hangar, maybe.


        1. Du Mhan Yhu July 5, 2018 9:21 am

          You have not a clue who I am, do you?

          You just spray slander and lies like spittle at those you hate.

          You and that poofter are peas in a pod.

          Still smarting after your flag waving stunt was a dud? Could not get even the liberal WHT to cover it?

            You and all your “ALTS” are still just you in a pod. By yourself.

    Unfortunately, all that firepower and the homeowners left powerless against two thugs.

    Also, how do you think the two thugs knew about the safe and the other guns and the ammunition and the cash?

    I guess when you are a “big man” with your “big guns” learning to keep your mouth shut is an issue!


    1. Buds4All July 5, 2018 10:19 am

      Cornhole Jack….we semi agree for once. Keep your mouth shut and let em have it when they come thur the door! Does sound like an inside job to me as well!


      1. The Real Hilo Jack July 5, 2018 11:48 am

        Well one thing we can also agree on – you sure like to be cornholed!


        1. Buds4All July 5, 2018 3:47 pm

          Easy there catcher!


          1. The Real Hilo Jack July 5, 2018 3:52 pm

            Oh geez! I’m sorry – you wanted me to keep that a secret!

            Oh well~

        It’s to late now but having a little yappy dog with the run of the house and one of those simi-auto pistols in ones night stand would have gone a long way stop to these local guys. I do have a big barking dog and a machete handy, if that big dog doesn’t get em….


        1. Buds4All July 5, 2018 3:50 pm

          Yep KRich…..concur. My 85 pound beast doesn’t let too many buy the property without letting them know he is there. Plus personal backup is very reassuring. Keep up the good work!
