HONOLULU (KHNL) - Bryan Clay's personal accomplishments, HPD's ban on masks, and a drug discovery, top this week's most viewed stories on KHNL.com.


At number 3: Drugs discovered in rental car

"We'd be looking into who had the vehicle last and how many different places this vehicle has been at," said Louise Kim McCoy, state Department of Public Safety.

State sheriffs took tens of thousands of dollars worth of crystal meth off Oahu's streets. And you'll never guess how they came across the stash, in a Budget car rental at the Honolulu International Airport.

Workers found a backpack and a fanny pack filled with drugs in the back seat. Earlier in the day, police returned the suv to the company after finding it in Kakaako.

Sources say the renter had reported it stolen.


Number 2: Officers question HPD's ban on masks

"I've had undercover officers that were, each and every time they went out, were deathly afraid of going out but they did the job anyway," said an undercover officer.

They wear masks to conceal their identities during police raids. Now undercover officers are questioning the Honolulu police department's ban on wearing masks and hoods.

Officers say the disguise provide protection for those working in a rough environment. But Chief Boisse Correa recently told his officers to stop wearing hoods, a move that's raising concerns.


And the number one story: Clay opens up about personal accomplishments

"I know that, without a doubt, that I would not have been able to accomplish what I've accomplished without my support system being there," said Clay.

He's known for his accomplishments in one of the most grueling events at the Olympics, the decathlon. But medals and honors are not what Bryan Clay hopes to be remembered by.

All of that pales in comparison to the success he hopes to have as husband and father.

He says it's because of his family, he has overcome early obstacles in life, and achieved his greatest dreams.

And these are the Top 3 Stories on KHNL.com this week.
