Maui non-profit needs help getting stolen computers back

WAILUKU, Maui (HawaiiNewsNow) - While many of us were out enjoying the Independence Day holiday on Monday, a burglar on Maui was busy stealing from a non-profit company. The company then searched its offices to see what was stolen.

The thief allegedly broke into the Keep Hawaiian Islands Beautiful office at Old Maui High School between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. on Monday. Employees discovered that two computers, a printer, and a modem were missing. The problem is the computers hold all the details for the state-wide K.H.I.B. conference next month at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

Jan Dapitan, the state leader of the K.H.I.B. said, "We won't let anything like this stop us. The hard thing is the volunteers who put the time in, to make the documents, now need to do a lot of repetitive work." Dapitan also said she hopes at least some of K.H.I.B.'s documents are stored elsewhere. Otherwise volunteers will be putting in a lot of extra hours, since the conference is just weeks away.

As for the computers, Dapitan wants them returned, no questions asked. If you have any information on the whereabouts of the stolen items, you can contact Dapitan by email at khib.kab@gmail.com or call the organization at 808-579-9308.
