Burglary, forgery and assault.

Those are just a few of the crimes in the arrest history of a 56-year-old Oahu man.

The career criminal has apparently struck again. This time, he’s accused of stealing mail in Makaha while on probation for other crimes.

He’s used at least 20 aliases, 11 birth dates and 10 Social Security numbers. He served his jail time, then runs into trouble with the law right after.

Steven Hauge has 58 prior convictions for a variety of crimes and according to Honolulu Police, he remains a suspect in a 2001 murder case in Waikiki.

Yesterday, Hauge was at it again. The Honolulu Police Department arrested him in Makaha for numerous counts of theft. According to police documents, eight different people complained about Hauge. He was caught with mail that did not belong to him.

When KHON2 visited the area, the victims declined to talk to us. They say the 56-year-old is a family member with mental issues.

Hauge’s rap sheet in Hawaii began in 1977 and includes trespassing, terroristic threatening, obstructing government operations, disorderly conduct, criminal property damage, burglary, theft, harassment, parole violation, shoplifting, assault, and forgery.

The 56-year-old most recently went to prison for a 2002 burglary case. He was sentenced to 10 years behind bars.

According to the Hawaii Paroling Authority, Hauge was denied parole twice, but was then granted parole in 2010 and fulfilled his sentence in 2011.

Hauge ran into trouble with the law again less than a year later. Records show eight more offenses since he got out of jail.

Just last year, this outburst in court.

“I’m protesting the state of Hawaii, I am protesting the treatment of the Hawaiian people, I’m against that, we’re for gay rights,” Hauge said.

That was after an incident in another courtroom, in which the judge put him in a head lock for disruptive behavior.

The paroling authority and the prosecutor’s office both declined to talk to us on-camera, but Hauge is still in police custody pending an investigation.
