The Waianae Satellite City Hall opened for business Tuesday, following an apparent break-in during which the site was ransacked.
Police responding to an alarm that went off at 1:50 a.m. Sunday at the satellite city hall found a plate glass window broken and the office ransacked, city officials said. In addition, police found a young male hiding inside. The suspect was taken into custody.
The incident marked the second apparent case of vandalism at a satellite city hall within the past several months.
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.
