Woman arrested cashing stolen check

Advertiser Staff

A 20-year-old woman was arrested yesterday after she allegedly tried to cash a stolen check at a bank in Wai'anae.

Police said the check, which was made out to the suspect for $1,400, had been stolen from a company where the woman used to work.

The suspect had been fired recently by the company, police said.

Man who runs out on meal faces felony charge

A man who allegedly ran out of a Waikiki restaurant without paying his bill earlier this month was arrested yesterday for suspicion of second-degree robbery, a felony.

Police said the 24-year-old man was fleeing from the scene of a theft at the restaurant on Jan. 5 when he shoved a 27-year-old man out of the way to make good on his escape.

Because the man is suspected of using physical force to get away, what would have been a theft case was elevated to a felony robbery, police said.

Patrol officers found the suspect yesterday on Kalia Road in Waikiki and arrested him in connection with the robbery case.

Suspect in multiple car break-ins arrested

A 20-year-old man was arrested Sunday in Kane'ohe as a suspect in three car break-ins.

Police officers responding to a report of a burglary in progress found the man sitting in the driver's seat of one of the cars. Next to him and in plain view were several backpacks and a government identification card.

Police checked the immediate area and found several cars had been broken into. Three men — ages 52, 60 and 62 — and a 58-year-old woman identified the items as belonging to them.

The 20-year-old was arrested for three counts of suspicion of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and one count of attempted unauthorized entry.
