HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - On Oct. 11, officers arrested Jesse Whipple at 1016 Eho Eho Avenue in Wahiawa.

The arrest was not based on any tips.
A man entered the 7-Eleven store on Kaonohi Street in Aiea on November 22, 1999. He heard his car alarm go off and saw a man standing near the vehicle.
"Upon the arrival of the police officer, the male was seen going through the back of a blue vehicle, he was searching the back area so the officer stopped him," said Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers.
Officers arrested Jesse Whipple for unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.
On December 12, 2003, a woman noticed her Acura Integra was missing from her parking stall at her Wahiawa apartment building.
"She talked with the security guard who related that he saw three males that possibly lived in the building earlier by her vehicle, but was not sure if they were the suspects or not," said Buffett.
Then about a week later, police found the stolen vehicle.
"Officers making routine patrols observed an Acura, ran the license plate, and found that it was the vehicle that was stolen. It was in the same parking lot," said Buffett.
