Honolulu police have launched an investigation into a vehicle fire that is possibly linked to an early morning burglary at Ala Moana Center.
Police said three male suspects rammed a vehicle into the glass doors of Macy’s on the second level of the shopping center shortly after 2:15 a.m. Monday. The culprits allegedly stole property from the establishment and fled in a vehicle.
A pickup truck possibly used as the getaway vehicle in the burglary was later found engulfed in flames on a road near 666 Prospect St. in the Punchbowl area.
Firefighters responded and extinguished the blaze just after 2:50 a.m. No injuries were reported.
Officers closed Prospect Street between Pele Street and Iolani Avenue to investigate and reopened the roadway sometime before 5 a.m.
Police have initiated a second-degree burglary and second-degree arson investigation.
There are no arrests at this time.
Macy’s spokeswoman Emily Workman declined to comment on the burglary due to the investigation.
“We are cooperating with the local police department and defer any inquiries to them,” Workman said in an emailed statement.
