HONOLULU (AP) — The Honolulu home of a 92-year-old Hawaiian heiress many consider a princess was burglarized over the weekend.

Abigail Kawananakoa’s wife Veronica Gail Worth tells The Associated Press they were home when a man entered their house Sunday morning.

Worth says he took a Louis Vuitton dog carrier. She says he took other items, including a coronation medal the king of Tonga gave Kawananakoa.

Worth says police were able to identify a suspect from surveillance footage. Police have opened a first-degree burglary case.

Kawananakoa, who celebrated her birthday this month, is embroiled in a legal battle for control over her $215 million estate. Her longtime former lawyer persuaded a judge to appoint him as trustee, arguing a stroke over the summer left her impaired. Kawananakoa claims she’s fine.
