Waipahu man tied to burglary, van theft
A 35-year-old Waipahu man was arrested for suspicion of multiple felony offenses after police stopped him in Waipahu yesterday morning while driving an allegedly stolen van that contained stolen items.
A police officer on routine patrol spotted the cargo van about 11:30 a.m. driving through an area where a burglary had been reported. The officer ran a check on the van's license plate and learned it had been issued to a 1991 vehicle instead of the much newer van the plate was affixed to. A further check showed the van had been reported stolen from a car dealer.
The officer stopped the van in the area fronting 94-032 Poailani Circle and learned the contents in the van matched the description of items reported taken during a burglary earlier in the day.
The van driver was then arrested for suspicion of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, fraudulent use of license plates and detaining stolen property.
