Police and members of the County Administration will hold a second informational meeting about the recent rash of burglaries and car thefts in the Kona area and other parts of Hawai’i County.
The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Thursday (October 18) at the Konawaena High School cafeteria.
This is a follow-up meeting to one held September 11. At that meeting, Hawaii County Police provided names and photos of several suspects. Within days, they had tips from the public that led to the arrest of several suspects.
Hawaii County Police will talk about what happened after the September 11 meeting and give an update on the arrests. Mark Disher from the County Prosecutor’s Office will talk about how their office is dealing with the suspects, what the criminal justice system steps are. Police will also answer questions and talk about the Neighborhood Watch programs.
Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi will be there and provide a statement about the current and proposed South Kona Police Station.
Persons desiring additional information may call either Bobby Command, executive assistant to Mayor Kenoi, at 323-4442 or Police Captain Richard Sherlock of the Kona District at 326-4646, extension 299.
