Police say a woman visiting convicted murderer Steven Capobianco at Maui Community Correctional Center tried to pass him drugs.
Police didn’t elaborate today on the contraband described as suspected illegal narcotics. The Maui woman tried to pass the contraband during visitation hours on Sunday.
Maui Community Correctional Center is one of the state’s correction facilities that still allow contact between visitors and inmates.
A jury found Capobianco guilty of second-degree murder and arson in the death of Carly “Charli” Scott. She was five months pregnant with his child when she disappeared in 2014.
Police say the woman and Capobianco were arrested for promoting prison contraband. Police didn’t identify the woman. The attorney who represented Capobianco during the murder trial couldn’t immediately be reached today for comment on the latest arrest.
The state Department of Public Safety says guards confiscated the item wrapped in black tape.
