Advertiser Staff

Two men were arrested after an off-duty police officer thwarted an apparent car break-in in his Hawai'i Kai neighborhood yesterday morning.

Police said the officer saw a man breaking into a car about 1:30 a.m. near his home.

The officer saw the man take a backpack from the car and get into a second car driven by another man, police said.

The officer followed the car and reported the incident, police said. Patrol officers were sent to the area and arrested two men on suspicion of unlawful entry into a motor vehicle.
