On October 31, 2019 at about 12:16 p.m., Officers from the Lahaina Patrol Division responded to a business on front street, to investigate a robbery that was being reported there. The male sales representative reported that a male offender, dressed in an apparent Halloween costume consisting of a dark-colored robe and wearing a mask walked into the store, approached him with a firearm and demanded merchandise from a display case the value of which has not yet been determined by the business. The offender then fled the store. Extensive checks of the area for the offender proved unsuccessful.
This investigation is on-going.
