11-10-21 Kona Trio Charged in Credit Card Theft Investigation

Hawaii Police Department

Three Kona residents are in police custody as a result of an investigation into the fraudulent use of a credit card. On Monday, Nov. 8, 2021, a 27-year-old visitor contacted Hawai‘i Police Department to report that her personal bag had been stolen within the past couple of days. The victim noticed that a fraudulent transaction using her credit card, which was inside of her stolen bag, had taken place at a store in Kona.

Police responded to the store to view the video surveillance and while there observed a man and a woman come onto the property. The man, 40-year-old Frank Hesia Jr. of Kailua-Kona, was wearing the same clothing as the male suspect in the video that used the victim’s credit card to make a fraudulent purchase. Hesia Jr. was in the company of 43-yeard-old Sabrina Chu, also of Kailua-Kona, who was in possession of the victim’s stolen bag.
