Man, 22, charged in Kona burglary
Police have charged a second suspect in connection with a burglary on Queen Kalama Avenue in Kailua-Kona on April 5.
Ammon K. Kamohai, 22, of Kailua-Kona was initially arrested Monday afternoon on two warrants for revoking probation in a drug case and on suspicion of promoting a dangerous drug. He was also wanted for questioning in connection with additional felonies.
Kamohai’s bail for the probation revocation charges was set at $100,000 and he appeared in court on Tuesday.
After court, police returned Kamohai to the Kona police cellblock, where they arrested him on the additional felonies, including those connected with the April 5 burglary.
At 4:15 p.m. Wednesday, detectives charged him with first-degree burglary, second-degree theft, attempted second-degree theft and forgery for the April 5 burglary.
The other suspect in the April 5 burglary, 23-year-old Tonino Benson of Kailua-Kona, was charged on April 12 with the same offenses.
Kamohai was also charged Wednesday with unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle for allegedly removing a vehicle from the parking lot of an apartment complex off Kuakini Highway in Kailua-Kona sometime between Sunday and Monday. His bail on those charges was $65,000.
Kamohai was not charged in the promoting a dangerous drug case pending additional investigation.
He remained at the Kona cellblock pending another court appearance scheduled for Thursday.
