Before dawn Friday, the little modular building that houses the college’s “The Hub” coffee shop was burglarized. It is unclear how many people were involved in the break-in.
According to administrator Michael Barros, a cash register was taken. No money was in the register.
The break-in was captured on the college’s security camera system. Barros, who has not seen the video but had it described to him by a technician, said that the suspects aren’t identifiable.
“They had their t-shirts over their heads, and they were tied,” Burros said, “It was dark and grainy—hard to see.”
School officials acknowledged that they handed the footage over to Honolulu Police sometime before 3 p.m. today.
Barros and others refused to release the surveillance footage to Ka La, saying that it would have to be cleared by another administrator who could not be reached today.
Barros said at least one police officer investigated the scene.
Facilities have been mostly shut down since early December when the previous semester came to an end, and aren’t scheduled to reopen until January 2nd. Except for two security guards seated near the cafeteria, campus mall was deserted today.
