Video: Hawaii residents on edge after mail thief is caught on camera

7/27/17 PAUOA (HawaiiNewsNow) – After security footage captured an alleged mail thief in Pauoa, neighbors are on edge and want the suspect caught.

On July 2, home surveillance video captured a man fiddling with a mailbox on Lusitana Street near Pauoa Road. He walked away with the newspaper. Later that week, he was caught snooping around again.

This time he looked to be holding an armful of mail.

People we talked to had no idea they were being targeted until a neighbor had a box of checks stolen. That prompted Henry Pang to check his security camera.

“I had an inclination there may have been theft. I wasn’t receiving publications of a regular basis. It wasn’t important so I just ignored it,” said Pang.

But on Wednesday, he filed a police report – one of several he’s made over the past couple months.

Despite having a locked mailbox the alleged thief continues to lurk around his home. Most of the time he’s carrying what looks like mail. Pang believes it belongs to his neighbors.
