Big Island police have located the remaining two people wanted for fraudulent use of a credit card in Kona.

Luke Kaniaupio, 21, of Kailua-Kona and Leilani Parent, 26, of Kailua-Kona were arrested in Hilo at 12:35 p.m. Sunday in a stolen truck, according to the Hawaii Police Department. They were taken to the Kona police cellblock while Area II Criminal Investigations Section detectives continue the investigation.

They were among the four people who had been sought for using a credit card after it was stolen from a car on Kuakini Highway on July 23. The other two, Colvin Gaspar, 22, of Kailua-Kona and Theodore “Kahui” Casuga, 39, of Kailua-Kona, were arrested last week, police said.
