Both MCCC inmates back behind bars after escape
It is believed 30-year-old Troy Diego and 31-year-old Barret Paman left the facility around 2:30 a.m.
Troy Diego, an inmate who escaped a Maui jail and was on the run for over 24 hours, has now been located.
Another inmate who escaped with Diego, Barrett Paman, turned himself in more than 12 hours after breaking out of the Maui Community Correctional Center.
The Department of Public Safety says Diego and Paman broke a door in their dorm and left at around 2:30 a.m.
Diego is expected to go on trial for charges of theft and breaking into a vehicle, and now faces an additional escape charge.
Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino gave this statement Monday afternoon:
“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.”
Public safety officials say Paman turned himself in later Sunday. He's awaiting trail for charges of burglary, theft, and carrying a firearm on a public highway.
Now, he also faces an escape charge.
Guards put the whole facility on lockdown for nearly an hour after they found the damaged door.
It's believed the men scaled the perimeter fence to leave. Officers found clothing in the barbed wire at the top of the fence.
