The Honolulu Police Department is investigating after an officer was charged with committing multiple counts of theft and identity theft at the Navy Exchange at Pearl Harbor.
Khanh Le, 51, a 12-year HPD veteran, was charged Saturday with second-degree theft, unauthorized possession of confidential personal information, identity theft, forgery, fraudulent use of a credit card, and credit card theft.
He was arrested Friday and released after posting $30,000 bail.
Le, who is assigned to the Waikiki district, had his police powers removed and will be placed on leave without pay, said Honolulu Police Department spokeswoman Michelle Yu. She said an administrative investigation was opened.
Le obtained more than $750 worth of property by deception from the Navy Exchange on Friday, a charging document said.
He also possessed stolen identification and a stolen credit card the same day, the document said.
