By Malia Mattoch McManus HONOLULU (Reuters) - Honolulu police said they arrested a man on Wednesday on theft charges connected to Australian golfer Robert Allenby, who reported being abducted, robbed and dumped from a car last month. Police said they identified numerous charges to Allenby's credit cards at stores around Oahu, and added that the suspect was arrested at the Oahu Community Correctional Center where he was being held on a contempt warrant for a separate incident. Allenby, 43, has said that he went out for drinks after failing to qualify for the Sony Open in Honolulu last month. He told Reuters then that the next thing he recalled was waking up groggy in a park miles away from the bar to find he had been beaten and robbed of his wallet, cell phone, cash and credit cards.
