3 charged in Ocean View burglary
Three Ocean View residents have been charged with burglary and other offenses in connection with a break-in at a business establishment in Ocean View earlier this month.
On Feb. 4, Kaʻu officers responded to a burglary at an electronics store on Prince Kuhio Boulevard in Ocean View.
Kona Criminal Investigations Section detectives investigated, leading to a search warrant at a home on Jasmine Drive in the Hawaiian Ranchos Estates subdivision on Friday. Police arrested 24-year-old Joshua Lawrence, 26-year-old Heather Hofferbert and 42-year-old Ronnie Gates on suspicion of burglary.
All were charged Saturday with second-degree burglary, second-degree theft and second-degree property damage. Their bail was set at $6,000 each. They remained at the cellblock until their initial court appearance on Tuesday.
Police later recovered several items that had been taken in the burglary and had been damaged.
