Big Island police arrested a Waikoloa man and a Waikoloa woman last week in connection with three burglaries in the Waikoloa area.

Police say sometime between August 11 and August 12, someone entered a house on Kehela Place and removed jewelry, clothing and electronic equipment.

On August 13, someone broke into a home on Pakanu Street and removed an electronic game device and several games.

On August 14, a Waikoloa couple reported that they saw a man leaving the driveway of their Lina-Poepoe Street home. The man claimed he had been in their back yard rescuing a dog from the swimming pool. When the victims went inside, they discovered that a screen had been removed and two laptops were missing.

Through investigative efforts, South Kohala police officers determined that the three cases were related.

On August 20, they arrested 29-year-old Crystal Beban on suspicion of burglary for the first incident and recovered $500 worth of jewelry and clothing. They arrested her brother, 32-year-old Jeffry Wayne McBride Beban Jr. on suspicion of two counts of criminal trespass and two counts of burglary for the other two incidents.

Crystal Beban was released later that day pending further investigation.

Jeffry Beban was held at the Kona police cellblock until August 22. He was then released while officers continue to investigate, gather further information and collect additional evidence.

Police ask that anyone with information about break-ins in the area call Officer Joshua Dumont at 887-3082 or the police non-emergency number 935-3311.
