Two pre-trial detainees escaped from the Maui Community Correctional Center early Sunday morning.

The Department of Public Safety reports that it is believed 30-year old Troy Diego and 31-year old Barret Paman left the facility around 2:30 a.m.  Officials say that’s when staff noticed a broken door in the back of their dorm building.  A lock-down was ordered, and a subsequent headcount confirmed they were missing.

Correctional staff searched the perimeter and found clothing in the razor wire at the top of the north-facing perimeter fence. Once confirmed that they were not on the grounds, the Maui Police Department was immediately notified.

The lock-down was lifted just before 3:20 a.m. 

Diego is described as 5-feet-10-inches and as weighing 140 pounds.  He has brown hair and brown eyes. Diego is pre-trial for Theft, Unauthorized Entry into a Motor Vehicle and Failure to Appear.

Troy Diego and Barret Paman are pre-trial detainees who have community custody status.  Community custody is the lowest classification level.

Both men face an escape charge when found.  If you see them, call 9-1-1.
