Police arrest suspected check forger after she returns to Waianae business

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:19 a.m. HST, Dec 19, 2013

A woman was arrested by police after she allegedly tried to cash a forged check at a Waianae business where she had previously allegedly cashed a forged check.

The 47-year-old woman, of a Waianae address, had previously cashed a forged check at the business on Nov. 20, police said. 

When the woman returned to the establishment at Waianae Mall on Wednesday to cash another forged check, she was detained, positively identified and arrested on suspicion of forgery and theft, police said.

And those in Waianae wonder why the rest of us always stereotype them lolo.

Well, I'm proud to live in Waianae. I have three college degrees (A.A. in liberal arts, BBA from UHWO, and MBA from Chaminade). I've owned a successful business franchise since 2000 and also teach college for a living. So, HAJAA1, why don't you tell us where YOU are from so that -- following your lead -- we can stereotype how IGNORANT the entire population of your community is based on your own ignorant remark. After all, neither you nor anybody else from your community ever does anything wrong...

Who doesn't have a Masters Degree nowadays ? I have 2 of them and so what? Waianae is still a major concern for illegal actions and aggressive behaviors and criminal vagrants!

Excellent point, ka_iwa! I too, have multiple college degrees but regardless of that, there will always be those like HAJAA1 who must bark at shadows due to their own insecurity.

SueH, Jerry D is barking and standing up against the troll named HAJAA1. Why would you support HAJAA1, who has nothing good to say about Waianae, or Makiki, or Manoa or McCully or anyplace town side? SueH, are you utilizing your critical thinking skills?

Well I have a 6th grade education, but have enough sense not to bash a community based on 1 particular event. True, this is not the only time Waianae has been in the media, but what part of the island has been free from negative reporting. We all live on an island, and the sooner we can all live together without catagorizing or labeling people based on their upbringing, the sooner we can all appreciate each other for what we are.

Exactly. Good to see that someone with just a 6th grade education (but a lifetime of practical wisdom) can be wise enough not to stereotype an entire population based on the actions of just a few.

ka_iwa, I don't have a Masters degree. Hundreds of thousands of people in Hawaii do not have Masters degrees. Please don't minimize yours and other's academic accomplishments

Well, for one...the dozens of students who sit in my classrooms each day do not have a masters degree (nor a bachelors nor associates). Perhaps someone as educated as you should make a personal sacrifice and teach our future generation the skills necessary in order to reduce such crimes as that reported in this article. Ka_Iwa, do your research...when I moved out to Waianae in 2005, there were ZERO registered gangs in that area....as opposed to Central Oahu, where I was born and raised and moved away from (several registered gangs, as well as an epidemic of property crime and status crime due to the double-income requirements for living in upper-middle class neighborhoods). For someone with "2 of them," I would expect a more rational and supported statement than just a blanket accusation of Waianae being a hub for criminal vagrants. Perhaps if you lived out here, your statement would have some credibility. Otherwise, I seriously question the quality of your "2" masters degrees (don't you know that you're suppose to SPELL out numerals zero through nine?)

nit, 2 years ago, my SIL transferred FROM Pearl City High to a WAIANAE school to teach. My daughter and he say that was the best move he made. SIL said the kids AND their parents are grateful people. Not only that, my SIL, daughter and their two kids MOVED to Waianae when he transferred schools. Five minutes commute to work, hello!

Jerry_D, I salute you for your academic and business accomplishments, and for defending your neighborhood. HAJAA1 is a troll who disrespects other communities, especially town side and Waianae. He will NEVER mention the community he lives in, so no one can disrespect where he is from.

Gee...when was the last time you read about a meth lab, abuse of a household member, DUI fatality, assault suspect, forgery/theft suspect in Kahala? Sometimes stats don't lie. It is what it is, Waianae has social economic indicators that are prone to a higher crime rate. There are great people who live there but you can't ignore stats.

According to HPD's website, District 7, beats 758-760, incurred four rapes in 2012. Since stats don't lie and evidently it's okay to stereotype a whole community based on the actions of a few, I guess that means everybody in Kahala are rapists. Your point is well taken, though, that stats do tell a story...but stats do not merit their own conclusion. So to reiterate my original point to HAJAA, stereotyping is ignorance.

You need to gather stats on the perpetrators of crime not the victims. Check arrest records and see what District is home to a majority criminals then get back to me...I thought you had three degrees and you were edumacated...LOL!

Well, Poipounder, I've cited my reference to my stats. So where are YOUR references and YOUR stats regarding the "home to a majority of criminals." Prove to this forum that the majority of criminals live in Waianae. In the academic world (to which, evidently, you do not belong), the burden of proof lies on the person who made the original statement...and the theme of your original statement was that there are more meth labs, abuse, DUI fatality, etc. in Waianae than in Kahala. So I say, PROVE IT! Show me the stats and cite your reference. Otherwise, you're just making statements based on your own unproven intuition (not acceptable in the academic world), and you are guilty of the rhetorical device known as "shifting the burden of proof" (used by those who have a weak argument; therefore, they resort to smokescreens and red herrings in order to sway emotions). So go ahead and check those arrest records and YOU get back to ME. Until then, my PROVEN assertion stands that there were four rape cases in Kahala; therefore, if we were to stereotype communities based on the actions of a few, then Kahala must be full of rapists.

What do you mean the rest of us? I don't live in Waianae but don't assume that all of the citizens there are criminally inclined. What I am sure of is that all places have their bad apples. Even the most uppity sections such as Hawaii Kai or Kahala has their crooks.
