Three Ocean View Residents Charged with Burglary and Other Offenses

Three Ocean View residents have been charged with burglary and other offenses in connection with a break-in at a business establishment in Kaʻū earlier this month.

On February 4, Kaʻū officers responded to a burglary at an electronics store on Prince Kuhio Boulevard in Ocean View.

Detectives from the Area II Criminal Investigations Section continued the investigation, which led to a search warrant at a home on Jasmine Drive in the Hawaiian Ranchos Estates subdivision on Friday (February 15).
