Bail revoked for ex-boyfriend of missing Maui woman

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 11:22 a.m. HST, Jun 17, 2014

Maui police arrested the ex-boyfriend of a missing woman in an unrelated terroristic threatening and weapons case, and revoked his bail in another unrelated case.

Steven Capobianco, the ex-boyfriend of Carly "Charli" Scott, was arrested on Sunday after he allegedly sent a threatening statement and image to several people, including a 16-year-old girl.

Police said the threat is not related to the Scott murder investigation.

Police said that Capobianco sent a "snap chat" message to several people, which contained an image and a statement that was taken as a threat. The image and message was captured and forwarded to the Maui Police.

Initially, Capobianco told police that he was willing to meet with them on Sunday night.

However, when the suspect charged his mind, police arrested him at 10:30 a.m. on Monday in Wailuku.

While searching Capobianco, police found a 4- to 6-inch dual edged knife, disguised as a belt buckle and sheathed within the belt.

He was arrested on suspicion of first-degree terroristic threatening and possessing a deadly weapon. Capobianco was not charged with terroristic threatening pending further investigation, but was charged with possessing a deadly weapon.

In addition, Capobianco was also charged with violation of his bail.

His new total bail was set at $502,000.

Capobianco was the last person to see Scott on Feb. 9 before she disappeared. He admitted to failing a police polygraph test.

Maui police said Capobianco was a person of interest, but never named him as a suspect. 

Capobianco has been charged in an unrelated burglary and was free on $10,000 bail.

Police said a Haiku woman told a detective that she suspected Capobianco of the September burglary in which she had two computers and jewelry stolen and her vehicle tires slashed.

Officers searched of Capobianco's home on Feb. 27 and recovered a computer and jewelry.

Police said the woman identified some of the jewelry as hers, but the computer belonged to Capobianco.

My thoughts exactly. If you go to the media partner story you will see that this creep threatened a family member of Charli but not specific for what reason and exactly to what extent.

That and MPD seems somewhat keystone koppish. String of dead women with clear suspects and no arrests.

Correction. Victims have no rights after they have been murdered. In a lot of cases they and their loved ones don't get justice either. Justice is blind and it forgets sometimes that they must protect the innocent not the guilty.

Yeah, need to fix that. Shouldn't be allowed to step outside of the rules AND still have the rules protect you when it's convenient.

Maybe, MPD needed to get something solid on him. Now, that they got him in custody, hopefully they can make things happen.

Why did this guy even have a girlfriend in the first place? I'm not blaming the victim for her disappearance (murder), but are there really NO OTHER choices for ladies to date, that they have to resort to someone like this? You repeatedly read about lowlifes (some with much worse backgrounds than this guy) who are also married and/or with a girlfriend or two. I'm glad I'm not a lady looking for a decent guy to date.
