Police say they busted a 31-year-old Kapahulu man who allegedly scammed elderly victims primarily in East Honolulu by collecting money to trim trees and then did not do the work.
There are 10 victims in their 60s through 90s, police said. The alleged thefts happened between June 23 and yesterday, when police arrested the man on suspicion of two counts of second-degree theft.
