HPD Web site to have
pictures of stolen property

Thousands of dollars' worth of stolen jewelry, electronic equipment and collectible items will be available for viewing on the Honolulu Police Department's Web site starting Monday.

Police and federal Drug Enforcement Administration agents recovered the 381 stolen items during an investigation after several searches.

The items will be available for viewing from Monday to Jan. 31.

"This is the first time we're using our Web site to provide people access to see their property," said CrimeStoppers Detective Letha DeCaires. "If you recognize an item, contact the detective who investigated your case."

Police said only those who have filed a police report before Sept. 28 will be eligible to claim the stolen items due to the date they were recovered.

DeCaires also urged any theft victims to update the description of their stolen property in their police report to make identifying them easier for detectives.

"If you have serial numbers of your stereo written down or kept receipts, that will help," she said. "A lot of the items are jewelry with inscriptions on it, so we can also identify them that way."

DeCaires said that of the 381 recovered stolen items, 236 pieces are jewelry, including gold Hawaiian bracelets, jade pendants and gold Rolex watches.

Other stolen items include camera, computer and stereo equipment; collectible coins; and baseball cards.

The Web site to access the images can be found via For more information, call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300 or *CRIME on a cellular phone.
