Police arrested a 50-year-old Honolulu man for an alleged beach theft in Waikiki.

Police said a swimmer left a backpack on the beach fronting Kalakaua Avenue and Ohua Avenue at 3:30 p.m. Monday. 

When the 33-year-old swimmer got out of the water,  he saw the suspect by his backpack putting his cell phone into his pocket, police said. The suspect fled and officers arrested him two hours later in Waikiki on suspicion of second-degree theft.

Perhaps the SA should do a follow up on this typical case to see how it's handled by our judiciary system.

Times have changed big time in Wakiki!!! Before, I could leave my bag w/wallet on the beach, buy a shave ice and come back to my bag intact. Now, forget it. Shame, nothing will happen to the thief, he will be back on the street to prowl and get it right the next time.
