WAILUKU, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The ex-boyfriend and only person of interest in the disappearance of pregnant Maui woman Charli Scott remains in custody Tuesday after his bail was revoked in an unrelated case.
Maui police arrested Steven Capobianco Monday morning for terroristic threatening in the first degree, after sources say he was accused of threatening a member of Scott's family.
According to police, Capobianco sent a SnapChat message to several people, including a 16-year-old female, and a member of Scott's family. The message was sent around 3 a.m. Sunday and contained an image and statement implying someone would get hurt. Officials say the image and message was captured and forwarded to Maui police.
A spokesperson with Maui P.D. says officers reached out to Capobianco and he agreed to meet with them in Lahaina, but then backed out of the arrangement. Capobianco was later located in Wailuku, where he was arrested and taken to the police station. According to police, officers discovered a 4" - 6" dual edged knife, disguised as a belt buckle and sheathed within the belt on Capobianco when he was searched during the prisoner intake process.
Maui police confirm Capobianco was not charged with terroristic threatening, though that case is still under investigation. He was charged with possession of a deadly weapon and violating the terms and conditions of his bail release. Bond was set at $502,000, but Capobianco remains in custody after his bail was revoked on an unrelated case.
Capobianco was arrested on felony theft and burglary charges in May. He is accused of breaking into a Haiku home on Eono Place last September and stealing jewelry, a laptop and a desktop computer. He is also suspected of slashing a vehicle's tires before leaving.
Maui P.D. says Monday's arrest is not related to their ongoing Charli Scott murder investigation.
Capobianco was the last person to see Scott on February 9, 2014. He told Hawaii News Now that his car broke down near Keanae and Scott took him to his vehicle, then followed him home -- but he sped ahead and lost sight of her headlights in his rearview mirror. Volunteers later found some of Scott's clothes at an area off the Hana Highway nearby. 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. Detectives re-classified Scott's disappearance as a murder in March.
More than four months since Scott disappeared, Maui Police have no new leads.
