Big Island police are searching for the suspect in the burglary of a Hilo home on Sunday.
Officers say at about 8:06 p.m. Sunday they responded to reports of a burglary on Kukuau Street. Responding officers discovered that the house had been broken into while its occupants, a 45-year-old Hilo man and his 43-year-old wife, were in a separate portion of the home. Police learned that several valuables were removed from the house.
Surveillance video shows a man exiting a light-colored late-model four-door sedan, which he parked on the shoulder in front of the property. The suspect walked to the front door, then momentarily remains at the door before returning to his vehicle and leaving. The same suspect returns to the home several minutes later, but he leaves the area prior to officers’ arrival.
Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect. They say the suspect appears to be Caucasian, in his 30s, over six-feet tall with a slim build, a fair complexion and neatly cut dark brown hair. He was last seen wearing khaki shorts, slippers and a black long-sleeved shirt with images on both the back and front.
