Maui inmates in custody after escape

WAILUKU — Both inmates who escaped from a Maui jail Sunday are in custody.

Authorities say Troy Diego and Barret Paman escaped from Maui Community Correctional Center early Sunday. Authorities say staff members later noticed a broken door in the back of a dorm building.


Paman Sunday afternoon turned himself in to Maui police. He’s awaiting trial for burglary, theft and firearms charges.

Diego, who’s awaiting trial for theft and unauthorized entry into a vehicle, was arrested at 2 p.m. Monday by Maui Police.


Both men now face an added escape charge.

The escapes come after a riot at the jail last month. The jail was designed to hold 301 inmates but had 410 at the time of the disturbance. State corrections officials say inmates were upset with extreme overcrowding.
