    The Kaua’i Police Dept. is trying to identify an unknown man captured on surveillance footage entering the County of Kauaʿi’s Wailua Wastewater Treatment Plant located near Lydgate Beach Park Nov. 30.

LIHU’E— The Kaua‘i Police Dept. is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man captured on surveillance footage entering the County of Kaua‘i’s Wailua Wastewater Treatment Plant located near Lydgate Beach Park Nov. 30.

At approximately 11:30 p.m., camera footage showed an unknown male subject entering the facility, who allegedly stole several items from the property.

According to KPD’s Public Information Officer Coco Zickos, the KPD can’t disclose any further information about the theft, but said the fact the investigation took two months to reveal information to the public is standard practice.

“This case went through a standard series of investigative processes and is not indicative of a KPD backlog,” Zickos said.

Anyone with information on this person is urged to contact KPD Dispatch at 241-1711.

Anonymous tips can also be made by calling Crime Stoppers Kaua‘i at 246-8300 or by visiting www.crimestopperskauai.org.

This article was corrected. Kaua‘i Police Department Public Information Officer Coco Zickos was misquoted about the investigation. Zickos correctly stated: “This case went through a standard series of investigative processes and is not indicative of a KPD backlog.”

    So where’s the released information? Cause the article above has absolutely no information in it, other than a theft occurred.
    Not releasing information until months after a crime is committed is standard practice for places that have a horrible tract record of solving crime, so yea, sounds about right Kauai.

    So, we put a homeless camp right next door, do not enforce any of the rules, let vagrants and crack heads come and go all hours of the day and night, and then wait 3 months to put out a request for help without a picture of the guy… How in the world is this guy not caught yet?
