Police are looking for thieves who made off with $17,000 dollars worth of farming equipment from two Hakalau locations some time during the evening of Thursday, September 30th.

Two water pumps, similar to the ones pictured here – were taken from one location… and from another site, thieves made off with a ‘harvester’ – commonly used to harvest sweet potatoes.

The photo seen here is of a similar model harvester.

Police ask for the public’s help in identifying suspects in these two thefts. Anyone with information about the items or the persons responsible for taking them call Officer Donovan Kohara or Officer Clive Okino at the Police Department’s non-emergency line, 935-3311. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
