Vandalism strikes 2 city facilities

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

The Waianae Satellite City Hall was vandalized Sunday and police found a young male hiding inside. 

The suspect was taken into custody after police responded to an alarm that went off at 1:50 a.m.

A plate glass window was broken and the office ransacked, the city said. The chief of the satellite office guarded the facility until daylight hours when the damage was repaired. The office opened for business Tuesday.

“We are committed to offering the best service we can”, said Mayor Kirk Caldwell when notified of the incident early Sunday morning, “but incidents like this affect the entire community and cost the taxpayers unnecessary expense.”

It was the second vandalism at a satellite city hall recently.

In October, a brick was thrown through the Dillingham Square Driver License Office.

Also over the weekend, the meeting room on the second floor of the Ala Wai Golf Course clubhouse was vandalized when someone sprayed fire extinguishers throughout the room commonly known as “the Palladium.”

The Waianae and Ala Wai incidents do not appear to be related, city spokesman Jesse Broder Van Dyke said.
