New episode of ‘Hawaii Island’s Most Wanted’ airs Friday
The new edition of the Crime Stoppers television program “Hawaii Island’s Most Wanted” highlights two men wanted on warrants and a third man who has already been located.
The latest episode begins airing today.
In it, police ask for the public’s help in locating a man they have asked for the community’s assistance in finding before.
Ted Barney John, 44, is still wanted on warrants for bail jumping, unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and third-degree theft. Now, he is also wanted for questioning in a felony theft case. In September, the suspect in the theft case offered to do work for an 87-year-old Kailua-Kona man.
After the victim paid the man for materials, the suspect cashed the check and never completed the work. John is described as 5-foot-7, 145 pounds with hazel eyes and brown hair.
The television program also asks for help in locating a 32-year-old Oahu man wanted on two bench warrants for contempt of court. Joseph Roy Carrion frequently travels to the Big Island and may be in the Waikoloa area. He is described as 5-foot-5, 165 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
In this latest edition of “Hawaii Island’s Most Wanted,” which was pre-recorded, Officer Patrick Menino also asks for help locating 43-year-old Michael Torres, who was wanted on a bench warrant and for questioning in connection with drug and auto theft cases. Police have since located and arrested Torres.
Police ask that anyone with information about either of the other two men call the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential. Crime Stoppers does not tape record phone calls or subscribe to caller ID.
“Hawaii Island’s Most Wanted” is a project of Crime Stoppers Hilo Inc., which is a partnership of the business community, the media and the police. It was inspired by the national TV show, “America’s Most Wanted.” The program airs on Na Leo O Hawaii Community Television Channel 54 on Sundays at 5 p.m. and Fridays at 5:30 p.m. It also airs intermittently on Channel 53.
