Big Island police are asking the public for help in identifying two suspects in a theft which occurred at a large retail store in Kailua-Kona on Sunday.

Two men were observed at noon Sunday filling a tote with miscellaneous tools and exiting through the front entrance doors without rendering payment for the items, according to Big Island police.
