Alleged thieves charged for stealing goats in Kahuku


The two men arrested Thursday in connection with a Kahuku goat theft have been charged.

Shannon Chun and Sherwin Mitchell were charged with live stock theft.

The two 24-year-old men remain in custody on $11,000.

Rancher Keal Pontin says 23 goats were stolen last week from his Kahuku farm.

Tips from the community helped police in this case.

None of the goats have been recovered yet.

On Tuesday, another suspect 25-year-old George Makaniole was released pending investigation.
