Prosecutors charged a 34-year-old man accused in connection with two arson cases in Waianae Sunday.
Travis Kepoo was charged Wednesday with second-degree arson and fourth-degree attempted arson. His aggregate bail is set at $50,000.
Police said a 56-year-old man reported a male suspect threw a Molotov cocktail at a bedroom window on McArthur Street sometime between 2:45 p.m. and 2:55 p.m. Sunday.
Approximately two hours later, a suspect entered a 55-year-old woman’s residence on Moelima Street and allegedly set fire to a sink cabinet. The blaze was extinguished before firefighters arrived.
Police arrested the suspect, later identified as Kepoo, in Waianae Monday in connection with the two arson cases.
He has a criminal record of two felony convictions for unauthorized possession of confidential personal information and unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle. Kepoo also has two misdemeanor convictions for theft and resisting arrest.
Police have not made any arrests at this time in Sunday’s arson case where a home surveillance video captured a male suspect throwing a Molotov cocktail at a bedroom window of a home on Farrington Highway in Waianae.
There are also no arrests yet in Friday’s arson case at HI Royalty Records at Waianae Mall where a suspect threw an incendiary device through a glass door.
