POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jan 27, 2014

QUESTION: A Honolulu Star-Advertiser story reported that a potential buyer called police to learn whether a vehicle was stolen. Do police actually offer this service? With Craigslist so popular nowadays, it would be helpful to get any information about a car before purchase. ANSWER: Instead of calling police, the Honolulu Police Department said anyone can find out whether a car is stolen by going to the city's Hawaii Motor Vehicle Inquiry website: www4.honolulu.gov/mvrtitleinq/vueVehicleInquiry.asp.
