Two men charged in May 10 break-in

Two men who are suspects in 10 to 15 recent burglaries in the Pa'wa'a, Kaka'ako, Ala Moana and Kapi'olani Boulevard business districts have been charged with a May 10 break-in at 1585 Kapi'olani Blvd.

Walter Cutsinger, 40, and David Acasia, 18, are charged with second-degree burglary. Cutsinger also is charged with drug offenses, and his bail is $20,000.

Acasia, charged Thursday with burglarizing a Pi'ikoi Street business, was re-arrested earlier this week and charged with the Kapi'olani Boulevard break-in. His bail was set at $22,000.

Big Island crash victim identified

Big Island police have identified a Puna man who died in a traffic collision Saturday on the Ke'eau-Pahoa Highway as Sunny Kang, 18.

Police said he lost control of his 1999 Acura while changing lanes, broadsiding a 1994 Nissan pickup truck at 11:36 a.m. Kang was pronounced dead at Hilo Medical Center at 12:16 p.m. Two people in the truck, an 82-year-old man and a woman, 79, were treated at Hilo Hospital for injuries.

High speed and poor weather may have been contributed to the accident, police said. It was the Big Island's 11th traffic death of the year.
