A 32-year-old Kahului man remained in custody last night for allegedly stealing five knives from Kahului Macy's and then pushing a security guard who tried to stop him.
Teodoro Ilar, who was charged with theft and harassment, was taken to Maui Community Correctional Center today with a $1,100 bail.
Police said Ilar put the knives, worth $347, in a backpack and left the store about 11:30 a.m. Monday. A security guard stopped him in the parking lot, but Ilar pushed him and fled, police said.
Officers arrested him nearby.
