Occupy protest at police headquarters in Honolulu

HONOLULU - Honolulu's version of Occupy Wall Street has taken its protest to police headquarters to confront city officials for confiscating tents and other personal items.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that the Occupy protesters sat near a metal detector at the building's main entrance for at least several hours Wednesday night.

Protester Andrew Smith said they're upset with city officials for confiscating nine tents plus bedding and personal items.

The 28-year-old said city workers tagged the items Tuesday at Occupy's main protest site near Honolulu. Smith said protesters substituted the items in front of a police supervisor and another city official, but they were confiscated anyway.

Smith said he filed a theft report with police.
