Honolulu police officers Thursday morning rolled into the Walgreens parking lot on Young Street and ordered three homeless people to leave the private property — part of an ongoing effort to remove a particularly stubborn group of five to 10 chronically homeless people from the area.
They’ve also rejected offers of help from social service outreach workers.
Between Jan. 2 and Tuesday, a special city cleanup crew has enforced the city’s stored property and sidewalk nuisance ordinances 42 times along Young Street near Piikoi Street, according to city spokesman Andrew Pereira.
