HONOLULU -

A lifeguard shed at Makapu'u was vandalized again on Thursday night.

Thousands of dollars worth of rescue gear stolen was stolen from the shed forcing Ocean Safety to pull out backup equipment for the busy holiday weekend.  It's a Christmas crime that doesn't sit well with beachgoers.

"It is unfortunate it happened especially at this time of year.  The holidays. That is kind of not too cool," said Waipahu resident Sheldon Sylva.

According to Ocean Safety, this shed's been repeatedly vandalized over the past decade, even with locks and safety measures.
