Alleged Humane Society burglar held

WAILUKU — A man was arrested after he allegedly burglarized the Maui Humane Society last week and fled from police, who found him with ammunition and drug paraphernalia.

Dylan Zahnow, 29, who gave no local address, was charged with second-degree burglary, attempted fourth-degree theft, second-degree resisting an order to stop a motor vehicle, keeping ammunition in an improper place and possessing drug paraphernalia.

Wailuku District Judge Blaine Kobayashi set bail at $4,500 for Zahnow when he appeared in court Tuesday.

While Zahnow asked that his bail remain at $2,000 set by police, Deputy Prosecutor Jeffery Temas had requested an increase to $8,000.

When Zahnow allegedly burglarized the Maui Humane Society on Friday, “the state suspects he may have been in pursuit of any drugs that were within the facility,” Temas said.

He said Zahnow disregarded police orders to stop his vehicle before he was arrested. In his vehicle, police found ammunition and drug paraphernalia, Temas said.

He said Zahnow has prior convictions for contempt of court, three counts of failure to appear, driving without a license and driving under the influence of an intoxicant.

Zahnow was ordered to stay away from the Maui Humane Society. He also was ordered not to consume alcohol or illegal drugs.
