HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The University of Hawaii at Manoa is reporting a rise in moped thefts.

In the past few weeks, five mopeds have been reported stolen from parking areas near student and faculty housing and lower campus.

Authorities say moped drivers should always use a solid steel lock, secure it to an immovable object, park in a secured, legal area, and register it with the city.

It was not immediately clear if any suspects were being pursued.
