Police Pursuit, Tax Deadline, Uncle Kokua Gives Away Millions


Honolulu police are searching for a man wanted in connection with an overnight police chase that shut down part of Kunia Road. It started in Mililani before midnight. When officers tried to pull over a Honda sedan, it took off. Police say one of the four occupants was wanted in connection to an earlier incident on the windward side. Three of them were arrested when they tried to run, but one got away. Kunia road was shut down for close to an hour and a half during the search for the last suspect.


This year, we received a little gift from Uncle Sam- two extra days to file our federal taxes, but time's almost up. Today is the deadline to file your returns for 2011. 28 Hawaii post offices will have special collection boxes for a midnight pick-up. The Honolulu Airport post office has an express line from noon to 8pm. State taxes are due this Friday. Ramsay will have last minute filing tips this morning on Sunrise.


Another deadline has now passed for about 2-hundred homeless people who were living on a stretch of coastline past Keaau Beach Park. The City notified them that as of 10 last night, they could be arrested for trespassing if they don't leave. City crews will haul away whatever belongings were left behind this morning.


The real estate mogul who's giving his fortune away to people in Hawaii in need will drop by Sunrise this morning. Not for us to plead our case, but to explain what motivates him to give away his millions, and feature the heart warming stories on a KFVE show. You can see Teri Okita's report on the man known as Uncle Kokua here.


Hilo drivers are feeling the pinch. They're shelling out an average of 4.76 for regular unleaded. That's a tie with the record set on March 31st of this year. Honolulu is a penny off the record at 4.48. We know those aren't even close to the highest prices in the State. Share your pictures on our Hawaii News Now facebook page.

Hope to see you on Sunrise,
