HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Honolulu CrimeStoppers Sgt. Chris Kim joined HNN’s Sunrise on Saturday to talk about jewelry thieves who have been targeting seniors with gold chain necklaces in recent weeks.

He advises people to be mindful of strangers approaching them.

Kim also said scammers will pretend to sell jewelry but instead steal necklaces the victims are wearing.

HPD needs the public’s help to identify and locate the suspects from a case in Royal Kunia on Feb. 7 and a case in Waipahu Town Center on Feb. 14. Other investigations are also ongoing.
