2 Arrested for Stealing Police Officer's Gun

(KHNL) -- Police have recovered an officer's stolen handgun.  Honolulu Police had warned everyone to be on the lookout for a potentially dangerous imposter after the gun and other police gear were stolen Wednesday afternoon. 

HPD recovered the stolen police officer's handgun at around 4:15 Thursday afternoon at Track's Beach Park in Waianae.

They arrested two people at the scene.  A 26-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were taken into custody.

The gun was just one of a number of items stolen from a police officer's personal car in Ewa.  Also taken were the officer's uniform and badge, along with a baton and handcuffs.  Everything but the gun is still missing.

The police officer's uniform has the name "T Faumui" on it as well as the badge number 2879. 

HPD says, if you are approached by someone wearing this uniform, call police.

"The reason why we're going public with the number and name, we want to minimize the person's ability to use or misuse the uniform," says HPD spokesman Captain Frank Fujii.  "Someone can do some real atrocities by impersonating an officer because they have the whole gamut."

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed this crime, to come forward.  The theft happened Wednesday afternoon between 2:30 and 3:00.

If you saw anyone trying to break into a white 1996 Dodge Neon, parked on Roosevelt Avenue in Ewa, you're also asked to call 911.
