Embezzlement Arrest, Missing Mom Latest & Expensive Mistake?

MAN ARRESTED FOR EMBEZZLEMENT

We're following developing news. A man who handled City worker's retirement money is behind bars...accused of embezzling thousands of dollars. Our Brooks Baehr has a live report tonight at 5.

STILL NO SIGN OF MISSING WAIPAHU MOM

A family still holds onto hope their loved one will be found. Loida Wideman was last seen leave for work Sunday night. Since then, police have found her car in Pearl City but no sign of Wideman. The family is calling on anyone who has information to call police.

SINKING FEELING IN WAIKIKI

After several days of work, crews were finally able to re-submerge a sewage pipe that had surfaced in the Ala Wai Canal. We'll show you how crews finished the job tonight at 5.

HFD & EMS MERGER?

Will a merger between the Honolulu Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services save the City money? City council members and department heads are trying to get to the bottom of that question. The Hawaii Firefighters Association supports a merger, while others say it could be an expensive mistake. Jim Mendoza brings us the details.

TEST DRIVING THE MISTUBISHI MIEV

So far our Sunrise crew showed us how several electric cars stack up. Tonight at 5, it's Dan Cooke's turn. He gets behind the wheel of a Mitsubishi MIEV (which stands for Mitsubishi Innovative Electric Vehicle).

Hope you join Shawn Ching & me for these stories and more tonight at 5 & 5:30!

Aloha,

    Trump has already rejected the idea of bringing in the FBI to reopen its background check of Kavanaugh. Should he order such a review, it would likely delay a confirmation vote until after the election.
