Police arrest alleged thieves after car chase along North Shore

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:23 a.m. HST, Dec 19, 2012

Police arrested a 41-year-old Hawaii Kai man and a 27-year-old Waimanalo man Tuesday for allegedly breaking into a rental van at Sharks Cove Beach Park rented by a Pennsylvania visitor.

Police said a 32-year-old man had locked his rental car at the beach park, returned a short time later and found the 41-year-old man inside at about 1:50 p.m.

The suspect noticed the 32-year-old man and stepped out of the van.

The men fled in the 41-year-old suspect’s car, driven by the younger man.

An all-points-bulletin led to police chasing the suspects along the North Shore. Police caught the 27-year-old driver and arrested him for driving without a license. 

Police later found the 41-year-old man at 4:45 p.m. in Pupukea and arrested him on suspicion of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.

Police said no items were missing, but valuables had been piled up near the van’s sliding door.
