SALT LAKE (HawaiiNewsNow) - Tenants at Stadium Mall arrived Saturday morning to find they'd been hit by burglars overnight. The thieves broke in by prying open back doors to the shops.
They stole a safe and its contents from the Tropic Rush frozen yogurt store. They got into Moanalua Pets and made a mess, but fortunately didn't take anything or harm any of the animals.
The crooks also tried to pound their way into a beauty salon, but were unsuccessful.
David Dip of Judy's Nail & Beauty Salon said, "They broke into the other side door, the one next to our door. Go into the shop. Halfway in and they make a big hole in the wall. The wall. They tried to get to our side, but then somehow they missed."
The burglars avoided being seen by security cameras by cutting through a fence that's out of the camera's field of view.
It's the second time the mall has been targeted in the past few years.
The case is under investigation.
