Hawaii Island Police are investigating a rise in property crime cases over the last two months in the 100 block of Makala Street in Hilo and are asking for the public’s help with any information on the responsible suspects.
In the early morning of Jan. 10, two unidentified suspects entered a mechanic shop and removed a beige 2000 Toyota Sienna Van with license plate JFA-111, two floor jacks with silver handles and painted blue base, four 35” all terrain Nitto brand off-road tires and a battery tester.
The suspects were seen attempting to conceal their identity in some video footage that was recovered in the incident. Police are continuing to examine the video evidence in the hopes of identifying the responsible suspects.
In the meantime police are asking the public for assistance in providing any information in the case and to be on the alert for suspects selling or attempting to trade any of the stolen items.
Anyone with information on the stolen property or anyone having information on the crimes is asked to call Officer Christian Schaber of the South Hilo Patrol Division at 935-3311, or anonymous callers may use CrimeStoppers by calling 961-8300 to provide information.
