Benson, 23, already charged Queen Kalama Ave. burglary
Big Island 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.
