HILO, Hawaii -

Two men were arrested Friday after police received a call shortly after midnight reporting suspicious men on a boat at Wailoa Small Boat Harbor.

South Hilo patrol officers responded to the 12:10 a.m. call and learned that the men had removed items from the boat and fled in a pickup truck.

A few minutes later, police located the truck nearby and observed eight fishing poles with reels in the truck’s bed. They arrested 47-year-old Milton Ahnee of Hilo and 36-year-old Dennis Poai of Hilo and took them to the Hilo police cellblock while detectives continued the investigation.

Detectives recovered the truck and executed a search warrant.  In addition to the stolen fishing poles, they recovered 0.9 grams of a crystalline substance, paraphernalia associated with the use of crystal methamphetamine, a rifle and ammunition.

At 9:40 p.m. Friday, detectives charged Ahnee with burglary and theft. His bail was set at $20,000. Poai was charged with burglary, theft, promoting a dangerous drug, possessing drug paraphernalia and four firearms offenses. His bail was set at $121,000.

Both men remained at the cellblock pending their initial court appearance on Monday.
