A woman arrested for stealing Christmas presents has been arrested.
Police say Danielle Manu-Kila was actually caught opening them.
“On April 27, 2011, the complainant’s home was burglarized, where jewelry was taken from the burglary. On that same day, an Ewa Beach pawn shop called police to report that three suspicious women were pawning jewelry and didn’t have their names, but did have them on video. On December 12, 2011, another burglary occurred in Waipahu where Christmas presents were stolen. While the officer was investigating the burglary he overheard on the radio that there was a suspicious vehicle with three females unloading Christmas presents on Poailani Circle and unwrapping the presents in the street,” said Sgt. Kim Buffett of CrimeStoppers.
Manu-Kila was identified as a suspect in both burglaries, and arrested for the crime.
She was wanted on two $20,000 warrants for not following the terms of HOPE probation.
Police arrested her on Aug. 2, at approximately 5:50 p.m., at 803 Kamehameha Highway.
Manu-Kila has three prior convictions.
