Former fugitive to appear in court
Kevin N. Pacheco, who was shot at by state sheriff’s deputies in Waipahu on Wednesday after allegedly driving a car toward a deputy, will make his initial appearance in District Court today.
Prosecutors charged Pacheco with first-degree terroristic threatening Saturday. Bail is set at $100,000.
He also faces a five-year term resulting from a grand jury bench warrant that deputies were trying to serve him Wednesday. A judge issued the warrant last month after a grand jury returned an indictment charging Pacheco with eight drug offenses.
Around noon Saturday, deputies arrested Pacheco in the lobby of the Ocean Resort Hotel on Paoakalani Avenue in Waikiki and took him to the Queen’s Medical Center after he complained of injuries after his capture.
Deputies were tipped that Pacheco was staying at the hotel under an alias, said Clayton Frank, director of the state Department of Public Safety.
Pacheco tried to flee from about eight or nine deputies and was tackled in the lobby, Frank said.
Frank said a deputy fired seven or eight shots at Pacheco’s car on Wednesday in Waipahu. Frank said he had no information that would indicate Pacheco was hit.
Deputies later found Pacheco’s car dotted with bullet holes and abandoned about a mile away.
Thief punches man, steals necklace
A 17-year-old boy was arrested early yesterday morning in Waikiki after a man sitting in his vehicle was punched and had his necklace stolen, police said.
The 25-year-old victim was sitting in his vehicle on Seaside Avenue just before 3:50 a.m. when a male suspect walked up and punched him through the open driver’s side window, police said.
An unidentified man then reached in, took the driver’s necklace and ran away.
The teenager was later arrested on suspicion of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.
