Man charged in burglary/police assault

By 67AM KPUA News

A 22-year old homeless man has been charged with several offenses stemming from Mondays burglary at a condo in the 75-6000 block of Kuakini Highway in Kailua-Kona.

Police, summoned to the scene shortly after 7:00 a.m., said the perpetrator entered the unit through an unlocked door and took several items including a jewelry box, ukulele and cellular phones while the residents were asleep.

Officers were called back to the complex some two hours later after Ian Medeiros was spotted sleeping behind a garage with items matching the description of the stolen goods. Police say one officer was injured when struck on the head by Medeiros while taking him into custody.

Medeiros was charged on Tuesday with second-degree theft, resisting arrest, first-degree assault of a police officer, first-degree terroristic threatening, promoting a dangerous drug and
possessing drug paraphernalia. His bail was set at $10,500.
