Man arrested in Lihue burglaries

LIHUE — Police have arrested the man they believe is responsible for multiple break-ins in Lihue this week.

Keoki Carvalho, 25, of Lihue, was arrested Wednesday evening on suspicion of three counts of second-degree burglary.

On Wednesday morning, police responded to a burglary complaint at Honsador Lumber on Wilcox Road. At the time, detectives were also investigating two other break-ins that occurred earlier in the week at Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall on Hardy Street and All Kauai Bail Bonds on Oihana Street.

Detectives continued to follow up on leads and analyze evidence, which led them to identify Carvalho as the suspect involved in all three break-ins.

Shortly after 6 p.m. Wednesday, Carvalho was located near the Nawiliwili Small Boat Harbor and arrested. He remains in police custody in lieu of $15,000 bail.

This is not not the first time Carvalho has been arrested on burglary charges. In 2014, he was arrested in connection with multiple business break-ins that occurred for about a month. He was charged with burglary in the second degree, theft and fraudulent use of a credit card.

Police continue to investigate other break-ins in the Lihue area in recent weeks.
