Three female shoplifters used a wheelchair Wednesday to help them steal items from a Honolulu retail store, police said.
Police said that about 5 p.m., store security spotted the suspects hiding items in the rear compartment of a wheelchair. One of the suspects was riding in the wheelchair, police said. Store security officers followed the suspects as they left the store without paying for the items.
Security officers caught two suspects, ages 23 and 41, outside the store, but the third suspect got away. Police arrested the two women for investigation of second-degree theft. The police report did not say whether any of the suspects was handicapped.
