HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Police say a convicted car thief with a history of abuse is on the run. Ramsay Wharton has more on Travis Shilling in this week's Wanted Wednesday case file.
October 11, 2004: It's just before 4 p.m when an officer spotted a grey Honda reported stolen from Keaahala Rd. and Kahekili Hwy. The officers attempted to stop the vehicle which fled at a high rate of speed. They tracked down the car, which was dumped along Anoi Rd. Officers searched the area and found four occupants that were in the car.
Among them was 30-year-old Travis Shilling. He was arrested for unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle. Shilling was convicted of the crime and released on probation.
Police say he couldn't stay out of trouble for long. On January 8, 2010, police say Shilling beat up his girlfriend around midnight near Kualoa Ranch. The report was of a male hitting a female. Officers arrived at the scene and found a black Chevy blazer and a female crying in the front seat with obvious injuries. Schilling was arrested for abuse of a household member.
But police say on February 16, 2010, Shilling failed to comply with terms and conditions of his strict hope probation and is now on the run. He is wanted on two $20,000 cash only probation revocation warrants.
Shilling has 17 prior convictions and is described as 5 foot 9 inches tall, weighing 252 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He has tattoos on his left shoulder, both arms and on his legs.
Shilling is known to hang out in the Kaneohe and Honolulu areas. Helping police find him could put up to $1,000 in your pocket.
