Big Island police have charged a Hilo man and woman for breaking into a home in Hilo last week.

Scottie I.K. Yanagawa, 26, was charged with first-degree burglary and second-degree theft.

Suzy Cho Chun, 25, was arrested on suspicion of second-degree theft.

On May 3 at about 5:16 p.m., police received a call from a 38-year-old Hilo woman that her home in the upper Ainaola Drive area had been broken into and several items were stolen.

Police received information that some of the items were sold to second-hand dealers in the Hilo area. Police were able to recover some of the stolen property, which led to Yanagawa's identification. He was arrested Tuesday morning and was held in the Hilo police cellblock while detectives continued the investigation.

On Saturday (May 4) police arrested Chun on suspicion of second-degree theft for being in possession of items from the burglary. Her bail was set $2,000. She made her initial court appearance on Monday.

Yanagawa's bail was set at $35,000. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance Wednesday (May 8).
