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.
