Two men are facing copper theft charges after police arrested them near Nimitz Highway late Tuesday evening.
The incident happened on Kilihau Street, an area hit several times by thieves in the past.
Hawaiian Tel says it’s their copper.
Police say they responded to a tip just before midnight.
When officers arrived, they saw 34-year-old Michael Akau and 36-year-old Shawn Ogasawara, attempting to steal wiring.
Both were arrested but have yet to be charged.
Hawaiian tel says service was not affected.
