A huge haul of personal protective equipment — valued at $250,000 — was stolen over the weekend from Wilson Care Group, law enforcement sources told Hawaii News Now.

 

Equipment stolen from the facility on Kapiolani Boulevard included N95 masks, face shields and gloves.

The items — in short supply — were to be delivered to hospitals and first responders.

Wilson Care Group provides home health care and operates a senior living center.

Honolulu police are investigating the burglary, and have not made any arrests.

If you know anything about the case that can help, call Crime Stoppers: 955-8300.
