  • How can you forget to take your laptop? I guess can, yeah, cuz yesterday I found a cellphone on the ground by the steps at the building by Ala Moana SC. I put it on the wall thinking the owner will back-track his steps. When we left, the phone was still on the wall, so, I turned it in to the security guard that was there.

  • I’d say he found it…. not stole it. I thought I was going to look at a video of a guy reaching into someone’s bag or something and taking the computer. This is nothing like that….

    • Agree, that laptop was abandoned by someone so it’s not like it was really STOLEN, he just picked it up following the “finder’s keeper’s” rule. Not saying that it was the right thing to do, he should have turned it in, but I wouldn’t call that stealing more like “finding without trying to find the rightful owner”.
