Police wait for test results in connection with Pearlridge bank robbery

PEARL CITY, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

According to sources, Honolulu police are testing evidence to see if three men arrested at Fort Shafter could be connected to a bank robbery Friday morning near Pearlridge.

The three were arrested by Honolulu police for unrelated crimes. 

A chase started after Honolulu police got a tip that the suspected bank robbers were at a downtown Honolulu business. Undercover officers followed a gray Ford Focus as it left the business on Bethel Street.

In Chinatown, the suspects realized they were being followed and took off. HPD chased them into Kalihi at a dead end street, the men dumped the car and ran off, hopping over a fence onto Fort Shafter property.

Police were able to find them near the base entrance where all three were arrested for crimes related to the chase. 

The bank robbery occurred around 10 a.m. when two men walked into the Pearlridge branch of American Savings Bank located at 98-200 Kamehameha Highway.

The two had handguns, demanded money, and took off running. Police and the FBI did find evidence including gloves and have sent them to a lab to be tested.
