2 ‘habitual property crime’ suspects arrested in back-to-back thefts

Two shoplifting suspects with prior convictions were arrested Monday night in separate incidents near one another and were being investigated for “habitual property crime,” police said.

In the first case, a 55-year-old man with prior convictions allegedly shoplifted from a Keeaumoku business at 5:20 p.m. Because of his prior convictions, police were investigating him for habitual crime. Police said he also had outstanding warrants.

Eight minutes later, a 33-year-old man allegedly took property from a nearby Ala Moana-area business and left without paying for it at 5:28 p.m., police said.

Police found drugs on the suspect and arrested him for third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug, as well as for allegedly committing a habitual property crime.
