The arrest took place last night at 7:30 p.m. with no resistance. Following his arrest, the defendant was held overnight by the Maui Police Department. The FBI transported him to Honolulu this morning so he could have his initial appearance in federal court.

The defendant will have his initial appearance in federal court today in front of Magistrate Judge Richard Puglisi at 2:30 p.m. in Honolulu’s Prince Kuhio Federal Building.
