Police ask for help in catching cigarette and booze thief

  • HONOLULU POLICE DEPARTMENT

    Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who took cigarettes and a bottle of liquor from a Nanakuli 7-Eleven on Nov. 24.

Honolulu police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who took cigarettes and a bottle of liquor from a Nanakuli 7-Eleven store last month.

Police released security camera images and video of the suspect, who entered the store at about 9:50 p.m. Nov. 24, threatened workers and took several cartons of cigarettes and a bottle of liquor, police said.

The two videos released show the suspect entering the store. One video shows him without a mask, and the other video shows him with a blue bandanna covering his face. The suspect initially has trouble opening the door to the store because he tries to push it instead of pulling the door open.

In both videos the suspect is dressed in a gray hoodie with gray sweat pants and white athletic shoes.

The case is classified as a robbery.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the Criminal Investigation Division at 529-3111 or CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on a cellphone.
