Veteran police officer charged with shoplifting

By Star-Advertiser Staff


A 25-year veteran Honolulu police officer was arrested Friday on suspicion of shoplifting at the Wal-Mart store in Pearl City, a police spokeswoman confirmed.

John F. Rapozo, assigned to the Narcotics-Vice Division, was charged with fourth-degree theft and released from custody after posting bail.

Rapozo is the latest Honolulu Police officer to be charged with a crime.

Last month Michael Tarmoun was indicted by an Oahu grand jury for allegedly assaulting a Waikiki prostitute -- a charge he denies.

Boyd Kamikawa, 53, was arrested in April on suspicion of negligent injury and cited for driving under the influence after his car plowed into a 61-year-old female pedestrian.
