Good to catch these thieves since just a few probably commit most of these crimes on this island.

Where at in Waipahu? A residential street? A parking lot? There are like-kind crimes that can be connected when more details are provided. Another truck was stolen about the same time frame a day or two earlier in a parking lot. See how that works?
