Police ask for help in Freaky Tiki sunglass shoplifting case

By Star-Advertiser staff


Honolulu police are asking the public for help in identifying suspects in a possible shoplifting ring.

Police said that a group of four people entered the Freaky Tiki store on Kalakaua Avenue on Dec. 29 and stole sunglasses.

Police released photos of the suspects and security camera video which appears to show at least one of the men grabbing sunglasses and concealing them.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on a cellular phone or Honolulu police at 529-3111.

Asking the public's help to find shoplifters? What next, printing a picture of someone littering and asking assistance to identify them? Murderers, rapists, robbers, muggers get no slack from me. But shoplifters? If I can get a cut of the Chief's salary or a nice bonus from the tip line, sure, why not!

Shoplifters are criminals. Period. They need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They steal from my wife, my kids and I in our family owned business. Would you like it if they came into YOUR house and ripped you off? I have worked very hard for 30 years and gambled everything I have ever owned in getting my business going. And I don't raise prices to cover the losses. When I catch them I put them in jail. Many are addicts. The last one i caught had a bag full of tagging paint and a heroin kit. Also on probation. What a wonderful citizen. Goodbye a**hole! Hope you like jail AGAIN!

Yep, cost of doing business increases and then must be added to cost of goods sold, so in the end everyone pays for these buggahs. Today it's big-time with gangs roaming the country like band of thieves, using stolen credit cards to pay for airlines ticket, 1st class.

Top of the line sunglasses can cost several hundreds of dollars each (thank you, Luxottica), so I suspect this business lost quite a large sum in this incident. I know people who work in retail management, and it is almost mind boggling how much businesses are losing due to shoplifting. Some say they've had to raise their prices to help cover those losses. I don't know if this ring will ever be caught, but I think the fact that the SA runs these stories with photos and video may make others think twice before doing it the first time, or again.
