Hawaiʻi Island police are investigating a reported break-in to a vehicle Monday (June 27) in the parking lot of a restaurant on Pauahi Street in Hilo.

After receiving a report and reviewing video surveillance, it was discovered that at approximately 2:54 p.m. Monday, an unidentified male entered a 40-year-old woman’s vehicle and removed an item. He then left the area in an unknown direction on a blue scooter or moped.

He is described as a younger “local” male with a slim-to-medium build. He was wearing a light shirt, light shorts, a white hat and a dark backpack. His image was captured on a surveillance camera.

Police ask anyone who recognizes his photograph or knows anything about this case to call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 or contact Officer Tyler Jelsma at 961-2203.

Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call the islandwide Crime Stoppers number at 961-8300 and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
