Iolani Palace releases surveillance video of vandalism suspects

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Iolani Palace has released surveillance video of the incident last week Saturday in which an original piece from 1882 was destroyed.

The video does not show the actual vandalism, but it clearly shows the two suspects walking inside the palace. Drew Paahao, 21, and Koa Alii Keaulana, 30, are accused of shattering an etched glass door panel and then breaking into the palace. The pair was arrested on suspicion of trespassing and criminal property damage.

The broken window was an original piece ordered in England, etched in San Francisco, and installed in time for King David Kalakaua's grand opening of the palace.

The incident occurred after 8 a.m. Saturday before the palace was officially opened for tours. Paahao and Keaulana have not yet been charged.
