HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Two theft cases and one incident of vandalism are featured in this week’s ‘This is Now Crime Round-up’.

On June 11 just beofre 5 p.m., two suspects pulled up alongside a white Jeep Wrangler parked in the lot for the Arizona Memorial along Memorial Drive.

One of the suspects is seen getting out of a gray Toyota Sienna and approaching the Jeep. CrimeStoppers said he then proceeded to cut the plastic barrier, breaking into the vehicle, and taking out items that appeared to be suitcases.

“These criminals, they know. They will frequent areas that they know that tourists will hang out at, whether it be the Halona Blowhole or this Arizona Memorial, it’s very popular. They know that tourists are going to go there,” HPD Sgt. Chris Kim said.

Kim added that often times tourist vehicles are easy targets, especially when luggage is clearly visible and travelers don’t have time or the ability to drop off valuables at hotels.

Both suspects are unknown in this case and were seen driving away in a gray Toyota Sienna. It had a Hawaii license place 966-TVG, but police said the plates were stolen from another vehicle.

In the second case, a man is caught on video vandalizing the automated fare collector card scanner at the Pearl Highlands Skyline Station. This happened on June 23 around 3:20 p.m.

He’s seen walking up to it, hitting it with his cane, then proceeds to pull out his pass card and enters the facility. Authorities say he then boarded the rail.

Then on July 3, the American Savings Bank in Kaneohe was robbed.

Around 4:30 p.m., the unknown suspect walked in, and handed a teller demand note for cash. The teller complied giving him some $1,100 in cash, before he fled the scene.

“He’s been described as an unknown male in his 60s, gray hair, thin build, pale complexion, wearing a gray/white cap, glasses, a high-vis neon shirt and dark color pants,” Sgt. Kim said.
