A man and woman have been charged with theft after they were identified as having used a credit card stolen in Kaanapali last month to make than $300 in fraudulent charges, police said.
The credit card was stolen Sept. 26 from an employee's locker at a Kaanapali restaurant, then was used in a shopping spree, said Lt. Chad Viela of the Lahaina Criminal Investigation Division. Surveillance photos led to the identification of suspects Randy Davis, 57, and Chelsea Cohen, 23, who used the credit card in five transactions, he said.
The suspects, who gave no local address, were arrested Oct. 4.
A detective linked the two to the theft while investigating a Sept. 24 report of a vehicle break-in at an apartment complex on Front Street, Viela said. Tools were stolen from the vehicle.
Bail was set at $25,000 for Davis, who was charged with first-degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle for the vehicle break-in as well as the Kaanapali theft. He was charged with second-degree burglary, first-degree unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle, second-degree theft, theft of a credit card and fraudulent use of a credit card.
Cohen was charged with second-degree theft, with her bail set at $5,000.
