Big Island police have charged a Captain Cook woman with a felony in connection with a shoplifting incident in October.
On Oct. 29, a man and a woman entered a clothing store in Kainaliu and removed items of clothing valued at more than $1,000 without paying for them.
After viewing the store’s surveillance video, police were able to identify the suspects.
On Sunday, the woman, 29-year-old Cassandra Lynn Ellis of Captain Cook, was arrested and taken to the Kona police cellblock while detectives continued the investigation.
Monday morning, detectives charged her with second-degree theft. Her bail was set at $10,000. She remains at the cellblock pending her initial court appearance scheduled for Tuesday.
