Alleged thief uses stolen debit card

An alleged thief may have gotten away with someone else's debit card if it were not for a store employee. The 36-year-old male suspect took a cab to a store in Waipahu and purchased items with the stolen card. The suspect then bought food at a restaurant in the store, but dropped the card when he left. The suspect went back to retrieve it, but an employee noticed that the photo on the card did not match the suspect. HPD officers were subsequently called to the scene on Sunday around 2:00 a.m. and placed the suspect under arrest.
