  1. Don’t know where to post this…so I’ll ask here. Did you hear any murder or mayhem in Leilani Estates this morning, early? I hear several police cars spent several hours on…Kupono St,(1down from the community center ) today. Usually, the police do not spend hours on burglary…so I’m wondering if you know of anything happening there this A.M.

    • Someone else reported an incident on Hai Hai Street today.

      I’m sure we have incidents all the time. I can’t keep on top of everything but post most of the stuff I do hear of. I myself didn’t hear of anything coming from the Leilani Estates folks that I know of.
