Feds investigate suspected Honolulu bank robber

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:42 a.m. HST, Oct 19, 2012

Federal officials are now investigating the man whom police arrested Tuesday in connection with two bank robberies.

The 46-year-old suspect, who gave no local address when he was picked up, is suspected of robbing the Kapiolani Boulevard branch of American Savings Bank and the Aina Haina branch of Territorial Savings Bank.

The man in Monday's Territorial bank robbery is described as 5-foot-6, 300 to 350 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and a large tattoo on his left forearm.

On Tuesday, a similar-looking man entered the American Savings Bank branch at 12:30 p.m., demanded cash and fled with an undisclosed sum of money, police said.

He was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of two counts of second-degree robbery.

He'll probably be out again in five years or so to do it again. They need to put away robbers for ten years minimum. They are a danger to the community. While we're at it we should have a registry for them.

He likely won't go to prison at all. Judges out here are weak and poorly educated in the law.

Is it just me or does it seem crime has increased 100% in the last couple years? As the economy goes down, the crime goes up. The mainstream media keeps touting numbers that make the economy look rosy, but the reality is: unless you have a government job, you're 1 paycheck from being homeless.
