Former Kauai police officer pleads guilty to stealing $25K from department

Former Kauai Police Department Lt. Karen Kapua pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court this afternoon to stealing $25,000 from the department.

Kapua, 53, faces a maximum 10-year prison term at sentencing in October.

As part of her plea deal, a federal prosecutor has agreed to dismiss two other charges accusing Kapua of stealing another $50,000 from KPD. Kapua has repaid the department $75,000.
