Honolulu police arrested a man who allegedly stole a "Denver boot" wheel immobilizer last month from the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus.

Police said the parking staff put the device on the suspect’s illegally parked vehicle on Nov. 24.

Campus Security Chief Wayne Ogino said the man was ticketed and the boot placed on the vehicle at 9 a.m. and when parking officials returned at about 5 p.m. to tow the car, both the boot and the car were gone.

The man apparently disabled the boot and took it with him. Police were able to track the suspect down through the license plate on the parking ticket, Ogino said.

Police located the suspect and arrested him Monday. He was released pending further investigation.

The UH Manoa Parking Services website says motor vehicles, mopeds, motorcycles or bicycles with multiple parking citations will be immobilized and violators will have to pay a $100 fee to get vehicles back and $50 to get a moped or bicycle back.
