EDITOR’S NOTE: Jeremy Perry has been arrested and this post has been updated.
A man who was arrested twice in the last four months is back in police custody after he didn’t show up for a court date.
Police had two $50,000 warrants for the arrest of 30-year-old Jeremy Perry.
“On May 30, 2016, at approximately 7:45 a.m., an officer conducted a traffic stop on a black Cadillac for numerous violations on Kahekili Highway and upon checking the license plate of the vehicle, the officer found that the license plate was fraud and the VIN number had been defaced,” said CrimeStoppers Sgt. Kim Buffett.
Buffett says the officer also found a stolen credit card in the front seat.
Police arrested Perry in that case for defacing serial numbers of motor vehicles, theft and unauthorized possession of confidential, personal information.
Then less than a month later arrested again after a man says he parked his truck in front of his home, locked it, went on vacation for a week, got back, and the truck was gone.
“And he started to drive around the Hauula area when he observed his truck being driven by Perry, he followed Perry but lost sight of him but later located the vehicle parked in front of an abandoned residence, police were called and they were able to locate perry hiding behind the residence and after a short foot chase arrested him for unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle,” Buffett explained.
Perry was arrested on Oct. 4, at approximately 7:15 p.m., at 53-309 Kamehameha Highway, for his two contempt warrants, two counts of dangerous drugs in the third degree, and drug paraphernalia.
Despite numerous arrests, and cases pending, he has no convictions.
