Capt. Cook woman arrested in car theft case
Big Island police say a Captain Cook woman is in police custody in connection with the theft of a car from Kealakekua.
The Acura Legend sedan was removed from Mamalahoa Bypass Road on Sept. 12.
A police investigation led to the arrest Wednesday afternoon of 22-year-old Randi-Keli Banagan, who was already in custody at the Kona police cellblock on a contempt of court charge.
Criminal Investigations Section detectives charged her at 1:05 p.m. Thursday with unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle. Her bail was set at $2,000.
She remains at the cellblock pending her court appearance scheduled for Friday.
