Maui police are seeking the public’s help in locating a suspect wanted for the alleged theft of two GoPro cameras from the Hi Tech Surf Sports store in Kīhei.
The incident was reported on Monday, Sept. 22, 2014, and was documented on store surveillance video, according to Maui police.
Police have since identified the suspect as 23-year-old Devin Ferreira, and released a photograph this afternoon, saying he is wanted for alleged second degree theft.
According to police reports, Ferreira was observed entering the store at around 3 p.m., looking at merchandise, and exiting the store a short time later.
