Police search for carjacker in Windward Oahu

Police were searching today for a carjacker who stole a late model Ford Mustang at gunpoint and led officers on a brief pursuit in Windward Oahu.

A man with a goatee and wearing sunglasses pointed a handgun at the victim, then took the vehicle about 4:45 p.m. at Kualoa Ranch, according to police radio communications.

The man fled Kahuku-bound in the silver convertible with its top down and a red suitcase inside.

Police briefly pursued the vehicle in the Kahuku area, but ended the chase because the driver was driving too fast, the communications said.

Police found the vehicle unoccupied with the engine running at the Laie Shopping Center about 5:40 p.m.

  • If this carjacker lived in New Jersey, Chris Christie would protect his right to own a gun. Christie, one of the bigger idiots among the Republican Presidential candidates (figuratively as well as literally), last week vetoed a bill to block convicted carjackers from buying guns in New Jersey. The bill passed both houses of the New Jersey Legislature unanimously, and Christie, pandering to the NRA, vetoed it.

  • Okay, they chased this person from Kualoa and could not chase this person because they were driving too fast. Don’t HPD have sirens? Do they work? What a joke on HPD.

  • Forgot to mention that I see HPD use their siren when they don’t want to be stopped at a light. I have witness this so often and in Kaneohe. Instead of cameras on their body they need GPS and a counter on how many times they turn on their sirens and for what reason. So shame that they couldn’t catch this person.
