Armed robbery 'caught on tape' in Waipio

WAIPIO (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu Police have surveillance video of an armed robbery at the Winner'z Zone entertainment center in Waipio.

It happened early Saturday morning.  The arcade-type business on Ka Uka Boulevard had already closed but that didn't stop three men from getting in.

According to police sources, one man used a metal bar to break the glass.  An employee tried to hide in the manager's office but was found.  One of the robbers used a silver revolver to threaten the employee and take $500 in quarters and $5,000 in bills.

They took off in a van with stolen plates.

The crime was caught on tape, it's unclear if it will help much, the robbers had their faces covered.
