A Honolulu police officer is awaiting trial for four criminal offenses, including theft, assault, and criminal property damage.

An Oahu grand jury indicted officer Danson Cappo on Jan. 29 for second-degree theft, two counts of third-degree assault, and fourth-degree criminal property damage. Second-degree theft is a class C felony, punishable by up to five years in prison.

Cappo, a police officer for two years, had his police powers restricted, a Honolulu Police Department spokeswoman said.

He pleaded not guilty in state court on Monday and was ordered to dispose of his firearms and ammunition. He was released from custody after posting $20,000 bail. 

A jury trial was scheduled for April.
