Woman, 21, indicted in Iolani Palace vandalism


HONOLULU — A 21-year-old woman has been indicted for vandalism at Iolani Palace.

The state attorney general’s office said Thursday an Oahu grand jury indicted Drew Paahau with criminal property damage and burglary.

Surveillance footage showed a woman kicking and smashing glass panes of a palace door in February.

Attorney General David Louie says he intends to prosecute the case to the fullest extent of the law because of the damage to a priceless and historic piece of Hawaii’s history.

The palace served as a home to the Hawaiian monarchy.

A judge issued a bench warrant for her arrest. It’s not clear if she has an attorney.
