Suspected moped thief's fall off pickup truck caught on video

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 03:16 p.m. HST, Jul 12, 2013

Honolulu police are asking for the public’s help in finding some clumsy moped thieves.

Police said that at about 3:52 a.m. on June 17, the suspects placed a moped in a pickup truck and drove off.

They posted security camera video on the Honolulu Police Department YouTube channel that shows the suspects arriving in two vehicles. As they are leaving, at about 3:52:25 on the video, one of the suspects is seen falling out of the back of the pickup truck as it starts to drive away.

The truck slowed so that the suspect could get back on the truck bed, as both vehicles drive off.

Police did not give the location of the alleged theft.

Why wouldn't they disclose the location of this? One would think that would help in getting more public input.

What lousy writing. The first "they" in the third paragraph apparently refers to the police. Then, without a transition the second "they" apparently refers to the thieves.

Hopefully they catch these thieves. Usually the few commit most of the crimes, and in the end crime usually does not pay...
