Hawaii County police have charged a 28-year-old Captain Cook man with 37 offenses in connection with various financial crimes stemming from unauthorized purchases made on a Keauhou company charge card in Kailua-Kona.

Travis Lee Charbonneau was charged Friday with one count of theft of a credit card, eight counts of second-degree theft, eleven counts of third-degree theft, six counts of fourth-degree theft, nine counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, one count of identify theft second-degree and one count of identity theft third-degree.

On June 3, police received a report from a business owner in Keauhou that the company charge card had been used to make several unauthorized charges at a retail store in Kailua-Kona.

Charbonneau is being held at the Kealakehe police cellblock in lieu of $57,000 bail pending his initial court appearance Monday.
