By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:37 p.m. HST, Jul 23, 2013

A defaced safety check decal led to the recovery of a stolen vehicle in the Ward area, Honolulu police said.

A sergeant in the area noticed the safety check decal and pulled the car over. Police determined the car was stolen and arrested the driver, a 27-year-old man, on suspicion of driving a stolen car.

His passenger, a 13-year-old girl, was also arrested on suspicion of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.

If the safety check decal was just "expired" and not "defaced", the crooks would not have been caught.

Very suspicious 27 year old man and 13 year old girl. Their "relashionship" should be investigated too.

One of my favorite kinds of stops. Simply to establish PC, observe the behavior of the vehicle occupants, investigate further as needed.
