Honolulu man sentenced to nearly 6 years in prison after stealing gun safe, utility vehicles

A 28-year-old Honolulu man was sentenced to nearly six years in prison for firearm, drug and theft offenses that included him stealing a gun safe with 28 guns from a Waialua residence and utility vehicles from a center near Schofield Barracks.

Glenn Robert Alika Muth was sentenced in federal court Wednesday for 71 months and three years of supervised release for possession of a stolen firearm, possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute and theft of government property.

The sentence would run consecutively with any sentence imposed by the state.

U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson also ordered Muth to pay about $125,000 in restitution to the victims of his offenses. He said the “significant danger” that the community was put under was the most troubling part of the case.

Kenji Price, U.S. Attorney for the District of Hawaii, said that Muth, in November 2019, burglarized the Waialua residence while on state probation. Muth was caught on a surveillance video installed at the residence.

HPD obtained the video, and police arrested Muth the following day outside an illegal game room.

A federal search warrant was executed on Muth’s backpack, revealing two firearms and ammunition as well as methamphetamine he intended to distribute.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Army Criminal Investigation Command also identified Muth as being responsible for stealing several utility vehicles and other equipment from the Logistical Readiness Center near Schofield Barracks.

The prosecution was part of Project Safe Neighborhoods, which brings all levels of law enforcement and their respective communities to reduce violent crime, and Project Guardian, a Department of Justice initiative to reduce gun violence and enforce federal firearms laws.
