LAST UPDATED: 10:51 a.m. HST, May 24, 2014

Honolulu police arrested a man they described as "a known Waikiki character" after he was allegedly seen on security camera video breaking into the resident manager's office of an apartment building on Lewers Street and Aloha Drive.

Police said the suspect, a 29-year-old homeless man, then burglarized the apartment of a building resident.

Police said officers  arrested the suspect at 8 a.m. Friday at the Oahu Community Correctional Facility after he was identified through the video and a photographic lineup.

The alleged burglaries happened in the early morning hours on May 12.

Prosecutors charged Felix S. Soares with first-degree burglary and second-degree burglary. His bail was set at $20,000.

The Governor and Mayor have sure let Waikiki turn into a cesspool. How about we rent Bratton & Giulani for a year?

Good idea but a waste of time. The city council is a bunch of gutless wonders, in addition to the Mayor. I say we round the homeless up and let them camp in the front and backyards of all the attorneys representing the ACLU and Legal Aid for a year. Then perhaps they won't be so adamantly opposed to what the city is trying to do to clean up our streets.

Perfect inmate to send to Arizona for his prison term. I wonder what he was in OCCC for. And why no picture of him SA?

What has this mayor done to our Honolulu? I used to go down to Waikiki once in a while for a weekend but not anymore. Who wants to be around all those homeless and street musicians and pedlers annoying you on just about every block. This mayor is worst than Muffi and I thought I would never, every, say that!

Oh lets be kind and give him a home (JAIL), after all he is a victim of society. What the heck is going to take to get this lame Mayor & Council, and spineless Governor to finally do something about this homeless mess that keep spiraling more and more out of control?

Let's get this character convicted. We still need a preliminary hearing, plea and trial if necessary. If found guilty he should be given permanent residency at OCCC. Disgusting are those of poor character... they will inherit long prison terms.
