Police said the suspect, a 29-year-old homeless man, then burglarized the apartment of a building resident.
Police said officers arrested the suspect at 8 a.m. Friday at the Oahu Community Correctional Facility after he was identified through the video and a photographic lineup.
The alleged burglaries happened in the early morning hours on May 12.
Prosecutors charged Felix S. Soares with first-degree burglary and second-degree burglary. His bail was set at $20,000.
