Four arrested in Hilo burglary
Tips from the public led to the arrest of a man and three women during an early-morning burglary in progress in Hilo.
At 2:45 a.m. Monday, South Hilo patrol officers responded to a report of a suspicious truck at a home on the 2000 block of Ainaola Drive.
Responding officers found a 36-year-old Keaau man, Raylad Brown, and three women, 37-year old Linda Kamahele of Hilo, 38-year old Lorilei Brown of Keaau and 39-year old Jeraldine Brown of Keaau, with a pickup truck containing items from the property and the house.
All four were arrested and taken to the Hilo police cellblock.
On Tuesday, police charged Lorilei Brown with first-degree burglary and third-degree theft. Her bail was set at $51,000.
Kamahele was released pending further investigation.
Raylad Brown and Jeraldine Brown also weren’t charged with Monday’s burglary pending further investigation. However, Raylad Brown was charged with shoplifting in an unrelated case. His bail was set at $1,000. Jeraldine Brown was charged with theft and contempt of court in connection with outstanding warrants. Her bail was set at $12,500.
The three Browns were held at the cellblock until their initial court appearances on Wednesday.
