Training slated to delay pools' openings
All Maui County pools will open late this morning due to lifeguard training, according to the county Department of Parks and Recreation.
County pools will open at 10 a.m., except the Lahaina Aquatic Center, which will open a half-hour later.
Early-morning swims at the Soichi Sakamoto Pool in Wailuku and the Kihei Aquatic Center will be held at their regular times, 6:30 to 7:30 a.m.
The department apologizes for the inconvenience.
People looking for daily pool schedules may call the Aquatics Division pool information line after 9 a.m. at 270-8208.
Arrests connected to probe of burglary
A man and two women were arrested early Thursday in the investigation of a burglary at Maui Toyota in Kahului, police said.
Arriving within minutes of the 1:09 a.m. alarm at the business on Hana Highway, Wailuku patrol officers found that entry had been made into a parts container to the rear of the property, said Lt. Derrick Lopez of the Criminal Investigation Division. He said that officers found a fence cut in two locations on Gaspro property.
Police stopped a vehicle of interest, Lopez said, and arrested its occupants, who are suspected of being involved in the burglary.
The three are being investigated for burglary and trespassing, with the man also being investigated in drug cases. The three had not been charged Thursday afternoon, while detectives continued an investigation.
According to police records, those arrested are a 34-year-old Kahului man, a 26-year-old Waiehu woman and a 33-year-old Wailuku man.
"Wailuku patrol officers did an excellent job," Lopez said.
Bail $10K in assault, property damage
Bail was set at $10,000 for a Makawao man who was arrested for throwing a rock at a person and the roof of a car last week in Makawao, police said.
Ronnell Derosa, 34, was charged with second-degree assault and second-degree criminal property damage.
He was arrested after police were called to a business on Baldwin Avenue at 4:58 p.m. Feb. 14 to investigate a report of a disorderly and intoxicated man who was yelling at employees. While officers were on the way, additional calls reported that men were fighting.
Two men were holding Derosa when police arrived. He was arrested on the assault charge for throwing a rock at someone, police said. The other charge was for throwing a rock at the roof of a woman's car, police said.
