Man, 62, charged in Kahala home burglary

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:01 a.m. HST, Oct 23, 2013

Prosecutors have charged a 62-year-old homeless man who allegedly burglarized Monday a Kahala home as a woman arrived home.

Alvin Umiamaka was charged with first-degree burglary Tuesday. His bail was set at $50,000.

Police said the woman arrived home at 3:05 p.m. Monday to find a man inside her house.

The woman found her home had been broken into and items were stolen.

The man fled as the woman called police. Responding officers found Umiamaka nearby and arrested him on suspicion of first-degree burglary.

Like Unclear stated, this is a headline, which is normally a short pharse. It's a very awkward opening line, something expected from a middle schooler, not a professional. How about this: "Prosecutors charge homeless burglar in Kahala area."? All other info can be in the story.

Why do all these stories with bad grammar and spelling have the byline "By Star-Advertiser staff?" If the writers were required to put their names on their work, the readers would be able to tell who the incompetent writers are. Otherwise, the entire staff, including proofreaders (if any) and editors are suspect.

This is the same guy that has burglarized homes in East Honolulu. The police should provide a picture so that when residents see him, they will be on the look out for his criminal activities.

62 and still doing crime. He could've taken early retirement and collected social security but since he probably never put in an honest day's work in his life, there is nothing to collect. Another burden on society.

My good friend's acquaintance qualified for $25 SS benefits @ age 62. Imagine that. The guy wasn't homeless. He beat the system by working for cash. Real smart guy, or so he thought, ALL his life!
