It was business as usual at Waianae Satellite City Hall Tuesday despite a vandalism incident over the weekend.
It happened at 1:50 a.m. Sunday. City officials say a plate glass window was shattered and the office was ransacked, but nothing was stolen. Police responded within minutes and arrested a young male hiding onsite.
Satellite chief Chase Masuda responded to the Waianae scene from his Aina Haina home and guarded the office overnight until stores opened and supplies could be purchased to secure the window opening.
Staff worked through the weekend to repair the damage and clean and reorganize the office.
“Incidents like this affect the entire community and cost the taxpayers unnecessary expense,” said Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell.
This was the second time in four months that a customer service window was shattered.
In October, a brick was thrown through the Dillingham Square Drivers License Office.
