Waikiki, downtown crime sweep nets 137

By Star-Advertiser Staff


Honolulu police arrested 137 people and issued more than 200 citations during an overnight sweep of high-crime areas in Honolulu.

The sweep, which began at 8 p.m. Friday and continued until 5 a.m. Saturday, covered areas of downtown Honolulu and Waikiki that generate the most complaints.

Most of the arrests were for outstanding warrants, driving under the influence of an intoxicant and drug-related offenses.

Some 208 citations were issued for jaywalking, minor traffic offenses and park rules violations.

The ages of those arrested ranged from 18 to 69.

Yeah, they need to continue this program in Waikiki since that place has been overrun by thugs and drug addicts at night with most of the crime committed in those areas.
