Security officers at the University of Hawaii at Hilo are keeping an eye out for a red pickup truck following the third apparent auto theft on campus in the last month.

According to the university, a white 1986 Toyota truck was taken from the UH-Hilo Theater parking lot sometime between 8:30 and 11 p.m. on Thursday.

Security officials said a small red pickup truck with black stripes on the hood has been seen in various parking lots on campus and is "of interest."

The campus community is being asked to report any suspicious activity to the Campus Security office at 974-7911.

Oh, nice.... Now that the crooks know security is looking for a specific truck, they'll probably just change vehicles, and most likely now gonna use one of their stolen ones.

So are you saying that descriptions of possible suspects should not be given to the public because they can cut/dye their hair, shave, cover tattoos, etc?

Just put in some good quality security cameras, and publish the videos later to have the public help out in catching these crooks. Once they see themselves on video, then it's pretty much game over for them.
