4 teens arrested in burglary spree

More people might be involved in the Windward break-ins, police say

By Rob Shikina


Police officials say they have broken up a Windward Oahu burglary ring that involved at least four teenage boys calling themselves the "Cash Crew."

The burglaries took place between February and April in Kailua and Kaneohe, police spokeswoman Caroline Sluyter said yesterday.

Officers arrested a 17-year-old and two 16-year-olds on suspicion of first-degree burglary April 30. They were released and rearrested at the Kaneohe police station Thursday on additional charges of first-degree burglary. A third 16-year-old was booked for investigation of burglary on Wednesday.

Police suspect the teens were involved in at least seven burglaries and believe there might be more suspects and break-ins involved.

Officers recovered some of the items taken, including a flat-screen TV, video game consoles and a cellphone, but jewelry and cash taken in the burglaries have not been recovered, Sluyter said.

Police released the suspects to their parents and turned over the case to prosecutors.
