Police arrested a 22-year-old Hawaii Kai man early this morning for allegedly riding a stolen moped, police said.

Police said a patrol officer stopped the suspect around 12:50 a.m. in Hawaii Kai because the moped had a defective light.

The officer discovered that the vehicle was reported stolen on Jan. 3, and arrested the man on suspicion of operating a stolen vehicle.

He'll probably be given probation. He'll do it again and do a little bit of time and then be let out to only do it again. Then he does a little bit more time and then let out again. Then another victim will lose his moped and this guy gets a little bit of time. Rinse and repeat.

Yes, But now he can't get a government job. So he will be losing way more money in good wages since all he can do now is flip burgers.

Nothing wrong with flipping burgers. It's a job and the guy is gainfully employed and not sponging off the taxpayers as others on the entitlemnent jag. Having said, provided he gets a steady job, which in most instances is remotely possible. More likely a career criminal.

And who says Hawaii's Finest doesn't cite for small vehicle light infractions? Give 'em the pay raise. They deserve it.
