The Maui Police Department has confirmed that Troy Diego was arrested at 2 p.m. on Monday. He is the second of two pre-trial detainees who escaped from the Maui Community Correctional Center on Sunday.  

The other inmate, Barret Paman, turned himself in to MPD, shortly after 3 p.m. on Sunday.

According to the Department of Public Safety, it is believed 30-year old Diego and 31-year old Paman left the facility around 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning.  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, Maui Police were immediately notified. The lock-down was lifted just before 3:20 a.m. 

Diego is awaiting trial for Theft, Unauthorized Entry into a Motor Vehicle and Failure to Appear.  Paman is awaiting trial for charges of Burglary, Theft, Carrying a Firearm on a Public Highway and Place to Keep a Firearm.  Both men now face an added escape charge.

Mayor Michael Victorino released the following statement following Diego’s arrest:

“Maui residents can rest easy tonight. As expected, the second and last escapee from Maui Community Correctional Center was arrested by Maui Police Department officers about 2 p.m. today.”

“I’m very grateful for our Maui police officers’ hard work during an islandwide manhunt Sunday and today,” Mayor Victorino said. “I’m pleased that it ended peacefully with the inmates returned to custody.”
