Police have made a second arrest in a case of four persons wanted for fraudulent use of a credit card.

Colvin Gaspar, 22, of Kailua-Kona was arrested in Kailua-Kona at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday and charged with four counts of violating probation and four counts of contempt of court, with bail set at $300,000. He was also arrested on suspicion of theft and fraudulent use of a credit card. He is being held at the Kona police cellblock pending further investigation of those offenses.

Theodore “Kahui” Casuga, 39, of Kailua-Kona, who was arrested Tuesday morning in Kailua-Kona, was charged at 10:10 a.m. Thursday with first-degree terroristic threatening, resisting an order to stop, reckless driving, driving without a license, promoting a dangerous drug, possessing drug paraphernalia and two counts of violating probation. His bail was set at $33,000. The terroristic threatening and driving charges are for an incident Friday (July 25), when Casuga drove his vehicle toward an officer on foot who was attempting to arrest him, refused to stop and drove away recklessly. The officer had to move quickly to avoid being hit.
