Woman charged with theft, assault in Waikiki shoplifting case

A 48-year-old woman has been charged for allegedly stealing merchandise from a luxury department store in Waikiki and assaulting loss prevention officers.

Carol Maniaci was charged Tuesday with second-degree theft and two counts of third-degree assault. Her bail was set at $20,000.

Maniaci posted bond and was released from police custody Wednesday. Her arraignment is scheduled for Monday at Circuit Court.

At about 3:40 p.m. Monday, police said loss prevention officers detained Maniaci after she shoplifted merchandise from Saks Fifth Avenue. The items exceeded $750 in value, according to a court document.

Police said Maniaci assaulted the loss prevention officers, ages 23 and 24, while they detained her. Police arrived and arrested her.

Maniaci has a criminal record of theft, promoting a dangerous drug, drug paraphernalia, driving without a license and criminal contempt of court.
