Hawaii Island police have located 22-year-old Kyson Kaleiwahea, who was wanted on outstanding warrants and for questioning in connection with burglaries in Hilo.

Police located Kaleiwahea Monday afternoon at Price Kuhio Plaza on Puainakō Street in Hilo. When he tried to run from officers, he slammed into a glass door at one of the department stores, shattering the glass.

The Volcano resident was booked on three warrants, one for violating probation in a drug case and two for violating probation in burglary cases.

Kaleiwahea's bail was set at $150,000 and he was held at the Hilo police cellblock until his court appearance on Tuesday, April 2.
