A further investigation revealed the 2008 Chevy Colorado pickup truck was stolen from Jim Falk Motors in Kahului on Saturday night (December 27th, 2008) sometime between 6:30 and 9:30 p.m.  The vehicle is being processed for evidence at the Wailuku Police Station.  The robbery incident was reported at 6:24 a.m. at Pacific Fish Market on Hoohana Street.

Police say the man entered the business, demanded money and fired two shots into a glass jewelry case before fleeing with approximately $600 in cash, and an unknown amount of jewelry.  He is described as approximately 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, wearing a camouflage army jacket and blue pants.  Maui Police have also released a photo of the suspect, which was taken by the store’s surveillance camera.

Anyone with information should call the Maui Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Divison at 244-6425 or Crimestoppers.
