On October 20, 2005, a Waimanalo woman and her daughter spotted a man getting out of her son's vehicle which was parked the in the driveway of their home on Nenue Street.

"She followed the male and neighbors were able to detain him and hold him until police arrived" said Sgt. Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers.

Police arrested Robert Cummings for unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.

"While being arrested they found drugs and drug paraphernalia, so he was subsequently arrested for both."
