HONOLULU (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - June 20, 2005. A Wahiawa man was awakened by his mother, who told him two criminals broke into his vehicle on Laniloa Place.
"The complainant's mother observed them so they got scared and ran off. Only the stereo was taken at the time," said Kim Buffett, a CrimeStoppers spokesperson.
Police say Brian Lagmay Senior was riding in the female suspect's car.
"He was the passenger in the black prelude. So they steal the items from the complainant's vehicle. They're getting away but because it's a cul-de-sac they have to make a U-turn and come back up the street," said Buffett.
That's when the victim spotted them and took action.
"The complainant moved his car because it's a cul-de-sac, moved his car to block her vehicle. She came back, Lagmay ran from the vehicle, was able to get away from police," said Buffett.
Lagmay was arrested in March 2006. He received hope probation, but violated the conditions. The 36-year-old is now wanted for a $20,000 cash only bench warrant.
He has six prior convictions. The warrant was issued on September 4, 2009. He is known to frequent the Wahiawa area. Lagmay is 5'8, weighs 157 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes. He has several tattoos, including the word "Wahiawa" on his back.
