Criminal Property Damage Suspect Wanted

CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspects wanted in two separate first-degree criminal property damage cases.

On Friday, October 18, 2019, between 2:00 and 2:45 a.m., an unknown suspect or suspects used a chain saw to cut down a wooden utility pole along Kamehameha Highway in Sunset Beach. The pole fell onto the highway, cutting electricity to hundreds of homes and blocking traffic in both directions. Part of the chain saw was recovered at the scene.

On Sunday, October 20, 2019, prior to 8:00 a.m., an unknown suspect or suspects damaged bolts attached to the foundation of a Kahuku turbine. One or more suspects were seen fleeing into the brush area leading to Kahuku High School.

First-degree criminal property damage is punishable by up to 10 years imprisonment and/or a fine up to $25,000 and restitution.
