Police investigate Aiea bank robbery

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:50 p.m. HST, May 30, 2014

Police are investigating Friday's armed robbery of the American Savings Bank at Pearlridge Center.

According to police, two men entered the bank around 10 a.m. and demanded money from a teller while brandishing handguns. The suspects, who both wore hoodies and masks, fled on foot.

Earlier this month two armed men robbed another American Savings Bank, in Salt Lake. Police have not said whether they believe the same two men who robbed the Salt Lake bank May 13 may be involved in Friday's heist.

Multiple news reports linked the robbery to the arrest of three men for allegedly trespassing at Fort Shafter.

However, a Hono-lulu Police Department spokes-woman would only acknowledge that police were in custody of three males for "unrelated misdemeanor offenses."

As of 8:50 p.m. Friday the three men had not yet been booked.

I wonder what the rate of increase in armed robberies in Hawaii is since the "recovery" started in 2009?

Don't let the facts get in the way of your unfounded beliefs. According to HPD's website, crime has been on a steady downward trend from 2003 (nearly 51,000 crimes reported) to 2012 (31,781). See for yourself: http://www.honolulupd.org/information/index.php?page=annual

And how can you tell when the figures only go up to year 2012? And why would they be unfounded when we've had a dramatic increase in homeless since 2009? Crime and poverty can always be found together. Why skew the statistics by including 2003? In case you weren't alive, the financial/housing collapse occurred in 2008.

Where are the witnesses? Two guys in hoodies and face masks? Nobody cared or bothered about them stealing and running away?
