HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Justin Fuller has a lengthy criminal record that includes stealing cars and shoplifting clothes. Now he has violated his probation, and police need help tracking him down.
On March 10, 2006, a 22-year-old man parked his car near Mauka Lani Elementary School in Makakilo. His keys were stolen while he was playing basketball. He went home to get a spare set, and when he returned his car was gone, too. Police found it by accident the next day.
"An officer stopped a vehicle for speeding in Kailua and found the vehicle had been reported stolen," said Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers.
The driver, Justin Fuller, was arrested for auto theft.
Then on August 7, 2006, security at the Ala Moana Macy's spotted a man stealing clothing.
"They were able to get a license plate of the vehicle that he had fled in. The vehicle came back as reported stolen. An arrest had just been made," Buffett said.
Through investigation authorities discovered Fuller was responsible for the car theft and the shoplifting at Macy's. He was arrested at OCCC.
Finally, on August 3, 2007, a 36-year-old woman was sitting outside the Starbucks in the Ward Entertainment Center.
"She turned and saw a male running with her purse she yelled for help and a witness in the area was able to tackle him," said Buffett.
Officers arrested Fuller for second-degree robbery. Now he is wanted for six probation revocation warrants totaling $120,000 for violating his HOPE probation. He is known to frequent the Kapolei and Wahiawa areas.
"12 prior convictions. They're for robbery, auto theft, thefts, probation violations," Buffett said.
