(Honolulu, HI) -- New police equipment is being pinpointed as the reason behind a recent vehicle theft arrest in Honolulu. A patrol officer arrested a 25-year-old Mililani man over the weekend using a new high speed camera that can check license plates for stolen cars on the roadways. Police say the suspect was stopped and eventually arrested after the new camera got a glimpse of the vehicle's license plate and it came up as being stolen. The new license plate readers were put on Honolulu Police Department patrol cars less than a month ago.
