Big Isle officials address security following 2nd bus theft

Hawaii island officials are scrambling to shore up security after a second public transit bus was stolen within a week.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports Hawaii Mayor Harry Kim said Tuesday he met with the County of Hawaii Mass Transit Agency to discuss security for the bus yard.

Police say it appears the suspect, the same in both bus thefts, cut the lock to the gate of the yard, which is as low as 4 feet in some spots.

Police say the suspect was charged Tuesday with first-degree theft, resisting an order to stop, reckless endangering, reckless driving, driving without a commercial driver’s license, driving a stolen vehicle, property damage and two counts of inattention to driving.
