The Kaua‘i Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying three men captured on surveillance between Aug. 22 and Aug. 24 at various stores on Kaua‘i.

According to police, on Aug. 22, a visitor from Texas reported that his wallet was stolen while swimming at Po‘ipū Beach Park. The male victim further reported that there were numerous charges from various stores and establishments on Kaua‘i.

KPD officers were able to recover surveillance footage from the various establishments and identified three male subjects as perpetrators conducting fraudulent charges.


KPD detectives are actively investigating this case. Anyone with information on the identity of the three suspects or with information on this reported incident is encouraged to contact KPD Detective Bobby Thompson at 808-241-1635. Those wishing to remain anonymous can provide information by calling Crime Stoppers Kaua‘i at 808-246-8300, submitting a tip at cskauai.org, or through the Crime Stoppers Kaua‘i P3 Tips Mobile App.

“We thank the public for their help to identify these three suspects. A day at the beach is meant to be fun and enjoyable, but we must also remember to remain vigilant wherever we go as thieves are opportunists,” said Kennison Nagahisa, Acting Captain of KPD’s Investigative Services Bureau. “Securing your personal valuables will help to reduce crime and keep your property safe, while enjoying the ocean.”
