WAILUKU, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Maui police have arrested Steven Capobianco in connection with a burglary that happened last year in Haiku. 

Sources tell Hawaii News Now that the arrest was not related to the Charli Scott homicide case.

Capobianco, who was Scott's ex-boyfriend, was the last person to see her on February 9th. He told Hawaii News Now that his car broke down near Keanae and Charli came to help him.  An area off the Hana Highway appears the be the crime scene.  It's the spot where some of Charli's clothes were found.  Police sources say they also recovered blood, a tooth and a bone. 

Maui police have called Capobianco a person of interest in the Scott case but there are no suspects.

The Facebook page, 'Find Charli Scott' mentions the arrest.  A post reads, "The wheels are turning...Thank you to the officers who are working so hard."

Maui police released the following information on the burglary he was arrested for:

Between 09/18/13 at about 4:00 p.m., and 09/19/13 at about 11:00 a.m., an unknown person(s) unlawfully entered a residence on Eono Place in Haiku, rummaged through the unit, then removed a "Dell" laptop computer, valued at $200.00, and a 20" "iMac" laptop computer, valued at $1,400.00 from within. Before leaving the premises, the unknown person(s) also deflated the tires to one vehicle and slashed the tires of another vehicle, causing an estimated $800.00 in damages.

The complainant stated she was holding onto one of the computers for a friend, who was going out of town, and the only other person who knew the location of the computer besides herself and the owner, was Steven Capobianco. At a later date, the complainant later learned some of her jewelry had also been taken during the burglary.

On 02/25/2014, while conducting a follow-up on an unrelated investigation, the complainant informed a detective of her missing computers and jewelry and that she suspected Capobianco. On 02/27/2014, during an unrelated search of Capobianco's residence, detectives recovered a computer and jewelry possibly belonging to the complainant in this burglary.

The complainant was later able to identify some of the jewelry as belonging to her. The computer belonged to Capobianco.

On 04/14/14 at 11:26 a.m., Steven Capobianco was placed under arrest for the offense of Burglary in the First Degree and bail was set at $10,000.00.
