The most recent edition of the Crime Stoppers television program “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted” highlights a Kona man wanted for a stabbing, a Pāhoa man wanted for auto theft, and a 40-year-old man wanted on an outstanding warrant.
The new episode begins airing Friday (June 29).
In it, police ask for the public’s help in locating 29-year-old Tommy Eugan Howard of Kona, who is wanted for a stabbing at White Sands Beach in Kona on May 22. Howard also goes by the names Casino, Tommy Washington and Cesar Waltz. He is described as African-American, 5-foot-7, 145 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes—but he might wear contact lenses that alter his eye color. He has a tattoo of a chain of musical notes that runs from his left shoulder down along his left arm. He may be in Kailua-Kona or Pāpaʻikou. He is also wanted by the Washington State Department of Corrections for failure to register as a sex offender.
The television program also asks for help in locating a 20-year-old Pāhoa man wanted for auto theft and other offenses. Vehicles were stolen from Pāhoa on March 3 and from Hilo on May 25. In both cases they were taken from homes in the late night or early morning hours. Ronsten Andrade is described as 6-feet tall and 180 pounds. He frequents the lower Puna area. He is also wanted for allegedly entering a vacant home in Pāhoa illegally and remaining there for an extended period of time, and for several traffic offenses—including reckless driving.
