Man charged in vehicle theft

Bail was set at $1,000 for a man who was driving a stolen vehicle when he was stopped for a traffic violation Tuesday afternoon in Lahaina, according to police.

Alika Pali, 39, who gave no local address, was charged with unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, second-degree theft and possessing drug paraphernalia.

The 2008 Chevrolet Equinox was stolen Dec. 7 from the Honoapiilani Beach Park parking lot, but the theft wasn’t reported until Wednesday after Pali had been arrested on a bench warrant, police said.
