Kona man charged for alleged threats that locked down 4 schools

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:33 p.m. HST, Feb 13, 2013

Authorities charged a 23-year-old Kona man with terroristic threatening in connection with menacing phone calls and text messages that led to the lockdown of four Waimea-area public schools Monday.

Lyle Kawika Pascubillo was being held at the Kona police cellblock on $4,000 bail after he was charged with two counts of first degree terroristic threatening.

On Monday, a 25-year-old Honokaa woman told Hawaii County police that she received threatening telephone calls and text messages. The text messages made reference to the threat of violent actions taking place at Honokaa School and Waimea Elementary School. The woman is not connected to the school, police said.

Police contacted officials at the two schools and notified them of the threats . As a precaution, school officials placed Honokaa Elementary, Honokaa High and Intermediate School, Waimea Elementary School and Waimea Middle School on lockdown for about three hours Monday morning.

Police determined the calls came from a residence in Kailua-Kona where patrol officers contacted and arrested the suspect. 

Hamakua District Police Capt. Richard Miyamoto described the threats as vague.

You know what, by his looks you know he had a hard time in school life. Just seeing all these comments here tells you he got teased and probably bullied from small kid time. Dats why the lock down on the Elementary schools on up that day.

It's pretty sad when people get a rise out of critiquing physical features of another person. I guess these "criticizers" must must think they look like Brad Pitt..........or his Angelina, as the gender may apply.
