An Oahu grand jury indicted a 26-year-old man on charges that he was one of four men who impersonated police officers in a home invasion robbery in Aiea last month.
James K. Kaleopaa Jr., who gave no local address, was indicted Thursday on multiple charges of armed robbery, kidnapping, firearm, impersonating an officer and other counts related to the hold-up shortly after midnight Aug. 22.
The armed robbery charges each carry a prison term of up to 20 years, but Kaleopaa could also face an extended term of life in prison with parole if convicted of all the charges.
Kaleopaa was arrested Friday in Waipahu.
City Deputy Prosecutor Keith Seto said no other arrests has been made in the case.
Police said four men with badges and a pistol walked up to two men in a driveway, told them to get down and then went into the home and ordered five people to empty their pockets.
The robbers fled in a white pickup truck, according to police.
Kaleopaa's bail was set at $100,000 in the case.
He is scheduled to be arraigned later this month when he is expected to plead not guilty.
