June 22 – The Honolulu Police Department said it is investigating more than a dozen burglaries at businesses around Oahu in the past two months, many of which the department says may be linked.
“What we can say is that these suspects are the same people who are responsible for multiple break and enters,” Captain Parker Bode told a news conference today.
No arrests have been made and Bode said that while the department is investigating “viable” cases, it is difficult to identify suspects in surveillance footage because their identities are hidden by their clothing.
Bode said the HPD believes the same people may be responsible for at least some of the recent break-ins, though he did not explain why. He said many burglaries take place at night, between midnight and 4 a.m., when businesses are closed. Suspects usually break in and drive off in a vehicle that may have been stolen.
