Honolulu police say officers captured two suspected auto thieves after a brief car chase through Haleiwa yesterday morning.
Police said an officer noticed a vehicle with what appeared to be car trouble on the side of the road in Wahiawa. A check of the license plates showed the car had been stolen.
Noticing the police car, the suspects jumped into the stolen car and sped off towards Haleiwa, police said.
The car crashed into a wall near Mahaulu Lane and the suspects, a 22-year-old Waialua man and 22-year-old Wahiawa man, attempted to flee on foot, but were arrested nearby at about 7:45 a.m., police said.
