A Hawaii island man accused of stealing a county bus on two separate occasions was sentenced Wednesday morning.
Kawelo Nakamura was sentenced to five years in prison, and must also pay $17,000 in fines.
In August 2017, Nakamura stole a bus from Hawaii County’s mass transit base yard and sideswiped a vehicle.
He was placed on supervised release when he stole another bus.
The county eventually hired a security guard for the base yard.
