Bail set for man in theft case
Bail was set at $15,000 for a Kahului man who was arrested Tuesday after he claimed a stolen motorcycle from a towing company, police said.
Michael Tenney, 47, was charged with two counts of unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle and second-degree identity theft.
The motorcycle was reported stolen March 25. On Monday, a towing company called the motorcycle owner to report that it had the vehicle. The owner, who was off-island when he got the call, tried to retrieve the motorcycle Tuesday, only to learn that it had already been picked up by Tenney, police said.
Police said an investigation showed that Tenney had been operating the motorcycle before it was towed.

Trash from parts of Launiupoko and half of the area by Lahainaluna Road were not picked up. The pickup is expected to be made midmorning today.
The department apologized for the inconvenience.
