Woman finds suspect napping in her house
Police have charged a 21-year-old man after he allegedly broke into a Kailua home and attempted to steal a camcorder.
But instead of fleeing, Kainoa Z.N. Almeida, of no local address, fell asleep on the living room floor, leaving the camcorder near the window he allegedly used to enter the home.
About 6:15 a.m. Sunday, a 60-year-old woman told police she woke up and found Almeida sleeping on the floor of her Kaapuni Drive home, according to an affidavit.
The woman called 911. When police arrived, Almeida was still sleeping. She told police that she does not know Almeida.
Police said Almeida entered the home by removing two louvers from the living room window, the affidavit reported. The woman later observed a screen and two missing louvers outside of her home.
She also saw a pair of shoes believed to belong to Almeida that were left outside of the window he allegedly used to enter the home.
Almeida had on socks that were covered with sand, but no shoes, stated the affidavit.
Police woke Almeida up and arrested him.
A couple of hours earlier, Almeida was seen crawling around the back yard of a Kuulei Road home with several other males. Police said a 60-year-old resident detained Almeida. As the resident attempted to call 911, Almeida broke free and punched the man before fleeing, police said.
Almeida was charged Sunday with first-degree burglary. He is being held in lieu of $25,000 bail.
