A 31-year-old man with a substantial criminal history has been charged after allegedly taking police on a chase through the Pali, to Waimanalo and then back toward Kaneohe on Tuesday has been charged with multiple crimes.
Scott Van Lee, of no permanent address, but previously of Kailua, is being held on $150,000 bail. He is expected to make his first appearance in Circuit Court on Monday. Lee was charged Wednesday night with second-degree forgery, second-degree identity theft, unauthorized control of personal information and second-degree theft.
