Maui Police have arrested the man they suspect was the robber at the Bank of Hawai’i in-store branch at Safeway in Kihei Sunday.
Thursday evening, at 6:08 p.m., officers were following a lead from the community that the suspect in the Kihei Safeway bank robbery, Kristopher Michael Sharrott, was seen in the Pukalani area. Acting on that tip, Patrol Officers checked his last known residence in Pukalani.
When the officers arrived, they noticed activity in the house. As the Patrol Officers cautiously approached the home, Sharrot, ran out of the house and was caught after a brief foot pursuit.
Sharrott was arrested for Robbery in the First Degree and Theft in the Second Degree for an unrelated incident.
