HILO, BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Three Ocean View residents have been charged with burglary and other offenses in connection with a break-in at a business establishment in Ka'u earlier this month.

On February 4, Ka'u officers responded to a burglary at an electronics store on Prince Kuhio Boulevard in Ocean View.

Detectives continued the investigation, which led to a search warrant at a home on Jasmine Drive in the Hawaiian Ranchos Estates subdivision on Friday, Feb. 15. During the execution of the search warrant, police arrested 24-year-old Joshua Lawrence, 26-year-old Heather Hofferbert and 42-year-old Ronnie Gates on suspicion of burglary. All three were taken to the Kona police cellblock while detectives continued the investigation.

Police later recovered several items that had been taken in the burglary and had been damaged.

On Saturday, Feb. 16 at 6:40 p.m., all three suspects were charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree theft and second-degree criminal property damage.
