HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - He already has 16 convictions and now there are two warrants out for his arrest. Daniel Shidaki is the subject of this week's Wanted Wednesday case file.
October 5, 2009. Police say Daniel Shidaki was seen shoplifting at Food Pantry on Kuhio avenue in Waikiki.
"He's observed by one of the store security placing items into a blue bag. Another security officer also watches Shidaki and observes him placing numerous meat items into the front of his pants," said Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers.
Shidaki allegedly took meat and seafood items worth nearly $500.
"He did walk past all the open registers and failed to pay for items. Stopped outside and arrested for theft in the second degree," said Buffett.
Last month, the 54-year-old failed to appear for a hearing before his trial. Shidaki is now wanted for a $20,000 cash only bench warrant. He also has a separate $20,000 warrant from the department of public safety.
"He does have 16 prior convictions and these convictions range from burglary, forgery, contempt, a lot of thefts, TROs and harrassments," said Buffett.
Shidaki is 6 feet tall and weighs 194 pounds. He has gray hair and brown eyes. He's known to frequent the Kaneohe and Honolulu areas. Helping police catch him could put up to $1000 in your wallet.
