Hawaii’s Most Wanted: Ronald Balai

EDITOR’S NOTE: Ronald Balai has been arrested and this post has been updated.

Honolulu police and CrimeStoppers have arrested a man who’s been convicted more than 30 times.

Ronald Balai was arrested on Jan. 4, at approximately 7:10 p.m., on Lipoa Place, for three contempt warrants totaling $50,150 for not showing up for re-sentencing in December.

“On Feb. 11, 2016, the complainant was driving on North-South Road when he got a flat tire,” said CrimeStoppers Sgt. Kim Buffett. “He parked and locked the vehicle and went to get help. Upon returning he observed a male reaching in to his vehicle through the passenger side and confronted him. … The male fled into another vehicle parked on the side and license number was provided to the police upon their arrival.”

Balai was later caught and arrested for breaking into a car.

“He has 35 prior convictions and is known to frequent the Waianae area,” Buffett added.
