A Kona man has been charged with two offenses in connection with the theft of a pickup truck from Kona International Airport at Keahole.

According to police, sometime over the weekend, a 2004 Toyota Tacoma was removed from a parking area at the airport.

Kona patrol officers located the truck Monday down an embankment off Koloko Drive.

The investigation led to the arrest of 21-year-old Colvin Gaspar of Kailua-Kona. He was taken to the Kona police cellblock while detectives from the Area II Criminal Investigations Section continued the investigation.

On Tuesday, detectives charged Gaspar with unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and second-degree theft. His bail was set at $20,000.

He remained at the cellblock until his initial court appearance, which was set for Wednesday.
