WAILUKU — A man and woman were arrested after they were found in a white van parked near a Kahului residence when a burglary alarm was activated Thursday.
Ian Donell, 25, and Makenna Miller, 22, were both charged with attempted first-degree burglary, second-degree theft, three counts of unauthorized possession of confidential personal information, four counts of theft of a credit card and unsworn falsification to authorities.
The alarm was activated shortly after 12:30 p.m. Thursday at the home on Huluhulu Place. A nearby resident reported seeing a woman get out of the van and walk to the house before the alarm sounded and the woman went back into the van, according to a declaration filed in court to support the charges.
In a search of the van, police reported finding two house keys and vehicle keys, as well as identification, credit and debit cards and an iPhone belonging to the residents of the Kahului house. A credit card belonging to a California man also was found.
The Kahului residents reported their keys, wallet and beach bags were stolen earlier at Ulua Beach in Wailea. They reported that unauthorized transactions on their credit cards had been made but declined.
Police reported finding the front security door, which a resident reported locking before leaving the house, unlocked.
During their initial appearances Tuesday in Wailuku District Court, bail was kept at $13,000 for Donell and $15,200 for Miller, who both gave no local address. Both were ordered to stay away from victims in the case.
