A Puna man has been charged with offenses related to two stolen vehicles.

On August 8, a 2005 Toyota Tacoma was taken from Aheahe Street in Hilo. It was later recovered from Kukuau Street in Hilo, where the suspect was spray-painting it.

On August 30, a 2003 Ford Focus was taken from Hawaiian Beaches. The next day, the victim spotted someone driving his car in the Orchidland area.

Police arrested the driver Kealiiokekai Kamanu, 28, of Pahoa, and took him to the Hilo police cellblock while police continued both investigations.

At 10:50 a.m. Wednesday, Kamanu was charged with two counts of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle. His bail was set at $20,000.

He remained at the cellblock until his initial court appearance Thursday.
