Honolulu police are looking for an armed robber who stole hundreds of dollars in cash from a Makiki convenience store.


Honolulu police said a 34-year-old man wanted for a Makiki convenience store robbery turned himself in to authorities Wednesday morning.

The Pensacola Mart at the corner of Pensacola and Davenport Street in Makiki was robbed 2:30 p.m. Monday.

Surveillance cameras captured clear video of the robber.  He took about $300 to $400 from the cash register.

The cashier said this is not the first time thieves stole items from the store, but this is the first time she saw a gun used.

The man was arrested at HPD headquarters on suspicion of robbery in the first degree and use of a firearm.

No one was injured in the robbery.
