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.
