An alert neighbor helped police catch a man who allegedly broke into a car in Makiki.

Police said the neighbor called 911 after observing a 32-year-old man break into his neighbor’s vehicle Sunday.

Arriving officers noticed the driver’s side door window was broken and found the suspect hiding in the vehicle, police said.

Officers arrested the man on suspicion of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.

That's what it's going to take to curb crime. Can't always point fingers at HPD. Everyone in the community must participate in the safety of the community.

allie this is quite a turnaround for you. I hope this a sign that we can expect better rather than the poor, terribly troubled untruthful shameful boy/girl we had become accustomed to.

and I also agree that HPD can only be successful in curbing crime with our support. Rather than making constant derogatory, derisive comments as some individuals had become known for.

Another criminal who will probably get short time. Again, Hawaii is soft on theft. Until our legislators see that theft is a serious crime we will continue the revolving door mentality. Many of these thieves have a long rap sheet for theft. They need to be taken out of the community for a longer period of time. It is hard enough to catch these thieves. Many who are caught will have committed many thefts before they are caught.

I miss the old Hawaii back in the 1960s, when no one locked their car. What happened to the Aloha in Hawaii?
