Three stolen Hot Pockets worth $9.40 landed two Ewa Beach people in jail last week.
Paul Wilhelm, 22, was charged with third-degree assault, and Rachele Wilhelm, 43, was charged with fourth-degree theft after a security officer was allegedly punched in the face over the food items.
Rachele Wilhelm put three Hot Pockets in a brown purse and tried to walk out of the Dillingham Boulevard Foodland on May 3, but was stopped by a security officer, a police affidavit filed in District Court said.
She signaled to Paul Wilhelm, who was in the parking lot, and he walked up and punched the security officer in the face, the document said. The two ran.
The security officer spotted the two again on May 18, this time at the Foodland in Ewa Beach, and called police, leading to the pair’s arrest.
After being charged, the two posted bail: $1,000 for Rachele Wilhelm and $200 for Paul Wilhelm. Police did not disclose their relationship.
