WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD (KHNL) - More than a hundred thousand dollars
worth of computer equipment have been stolen from a U.S. Army warehouse,
twice in one month. Investigators are looking into leads, but now,
they're expanding their scope.
We're talking about brand new laptops and computer monitors still in
their original boxes. The Army's Criminal Investigation Command is
following up on every possible clue, and now they need your help.
This warehouse at Wheeler Army Airfield sits off of a quiet road. In
October of last year, thieves took advantage of the solitude, stealing
Dell laptops and monitors similar to these. They made off with about
$118,000 worth of goods.
"Higgins Road itself is off post proper, outside of checkpoints if you
will, such as Wheeler and Schofield Barracks," said Special Agent John
Monize, with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command. "And as such,
the public can access this road without hindrance or checkpoints."
And it loops around to a dirt road, secluded and away from view.
