A 22-year-old Puna man who was charged with robbery earlier this week has been arrested again on unrelated charges of violence within 48 hours after “bonding out” on the robbery offense.

Gary Simpkins of Hawaiian Beaches was being sought on a robbery charge when he turned himself in to police on Monday (September 26). He was charged with the felony the following day with bail set at $5,000. After posting bond later that day, he was released from police custody.

At 8:50 p.m. Thursday (September 29), Simpkins was arrested for terroristic threatening, criminal property damage and unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle after he allegedly used a bat to smash four windows on a vehicle occupied by a 21-year-old woman and her 3-year-old son in the Hawaiian Beaches subdivision of Puna. He was later charged, and bail was set at $12,000.

He remains in custody pending his initial court appearance scheduled for Friday (September 30).
