Victim catches alleged thief trying to sell loot

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:53 a.m. HST, Nov 27, 2012

A 45-year-old Waikiki man who allegedly tried to sell four stolen wheels and tires online was caught by the man he stole the items from, police say.

Police report that the suspect stole the tires and rims on Sunday and advertised them online.

The owner saw the items and with several of his friends made arrangements to meet the suspect Monday night at a McCully storage facility.

After identifying the stolen items, the owner called police who arrested the suspect on suspicion of second-degree theft.

I like that story. Anyone who steals I think is less than astute. But, as the news says, with Obama being elected people are buying more fire arms--why did we elect and reelect HIM???? I think it is going to get worse--Michelle will have her travel plans ready for the next four years at taxpayer expense--Barry will run AF 1 into the ground as he lines up his speaking engagements when he gets out of office, just like Bill C!!! Hey, it's only money--ours!!!

Thankfully, the one thing that helps in the battle of crime is that a lot of times, the criminal is dumber than we are. Remember that sad incident where a burglar burned down a home and the elderly woman living in it passed away? He tried to hide his face from a security camera by putting his t-shirt over his head, thereby exposing his intricate one-of-a-kind tattoos on his body? It's those brilliant ones we need to worry about.

The creep probably has a rap sheet and will only receive probation so that he can get "help" for his drug problem. We should put guys like this on a registry. That way we'll know who not to invite into our home. But we know that's not going to happen. Hawaii is soft on thieves and burglars. Even murderers are allowed to leave prison once they have completed their sentence without going on the registry.

The victim has done their job. Shouldn't have to, but good on them. Now, the court system has to do their job! The Hawaii Court system should do their best to fight crime, or else Vigilantism is our only resort. Get rid of the body and move on!
