Wahiawa man arrested for second Mililani bank robbery

A Wahiawa man suspected of robbing a Bank of Hawaii branch at Mililani Shopping Center earlier this week was arrested Thursday in connection with a second bank robbery at the same shopping center four days earlier.

The man, who has not been charged, was placed on a “federal hold” at 8 p.m. Thursday, which possibly means federal authorities will handle the case, police said.

Police said the man entered the American Savings Bank about 11:10 a.m. Friday and gave a note to the teller demanding she give him money or he would shoot her. Fearing for her safety, the teller gave the man $2,000. He fled with the note and the cash.

Police arrested the man at 12:25 p.m. Thursday for investigation of first-degree robbery. Before Thursda’s arrest, the man was already in police custody in connection with Tuesday’s robbery. 

Police said in that case the man entered the Bank of Hawaii at 95-211 Kipapa Drive about 1 p.m., demanded money and fled. He was located at a Haleiwa beach park Wednesday afternoon and arrested for first-degree robbery.

With our weak judicial system, prosecutors who opt for plea agreements, and a parole board with their heads in the sand, Hawaii is the best place to commit a crime.

Tellers are taught to give the robber what they want. She was probably scared but fearing for her safety wasn't the only reason she gave the guy the money.

I hope the courts have enough common sense to lock this guy and toss the key. Thug, good for nothing and no loss to the community. Let this guy free and history will always repeat itself with these clowns. Sick of these punks. Need some Guardian Angels in the community to take care of these guys.
