Convicted thief told
to avoid West Maui
WAILUKU >> A man convicted of a number of thefts in West Maui has been released from jail but has been ordered to stay out of the area.
Under terms of a plea agreement, Solomon Moke Kane, 35, must stay out of the area from Olowalu to Kapalua unless he gets permission from his probation officer, authorities said.
Deputy Prosecutor J.W. Hupp said Kane had agreed to the restriction when he earlier pleaded no contest to second-degree theft, two counts of theft of a credit card, fraudulent use of a credit card, attempted second-degree theft, third-degree theft and auto theft.
Circuit Judge Joel August ordered Kane to pay $530 in restitution, write letters apologizing to the victims of his crimes and begin efforts to obtain the equivalent of his high school diploma within 90 days.
Kane apologized to the victims and told the judge he wants to get into drug rehabilitation, get a full-time job and support his daughter.
