Man tracks down alleged thieves in Manoa

By Star-Advertiser staff


A 50-year-old Manoa resident saw two homeless people leaving his home Wednesday afternoon carrying a large bag and went looking for the couple after calling police.

The 50-year-old man and his 25-year-old companion — neither gave a home address when arrested — were found by the victim at University Avenue and Maile Way 30 minutes after the victim called police at 3 p.m. Both were arrested on suspicion of first-degree robbery.

Quickest way of getting 3 squares a day, go rob a bank or anything, if you are homeless. Same goes if you want medical attention..

Crimes committed by the homeless population in Hawaii account for about 1% of the total. Majority of crimes are committed by citizens that are gainfully employed and can afford housing either own or rent.

I think you mean public caning. Although treating these thieves like a pineapple being processed in a former Oahu Dole cannery plant would be equally unpleasant.
