KALIHI, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow)- An ongoing problem at a homeless shelter in Kalihi is finally caught on camera.
Surveillance video at the Institute for Human Services on Kaaahi Street revealed a pair of thieves stealing more than thirty pounds of banana from the shelter's garden last week.
The cameras, installed less than two weeks ago, show two men get out of their SUV, chop the branch and take off. The incident occurred shortly before 3 p.m. last week Sunday. Theft cases like this have been an issue at the facility for more than two years.
"We've had this happen several times before not only on the men's side but also on the women's side," Director of Facilities and Operations Gordon Ortiz said. "We've never caught anybody so it was surprising that this system was in the right place at the right time."
