1 Maui inmate remains missing after 2 escape

WAILUKU — One of two inmates who escaped from a Maui jail remains missing.

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

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

Diego remains missing Monday. He’s awaiting trial for theft and unauthorized entry into a vehicle.

Maui Mayor Michael Victorino urges everyone to “stay calm but remain vigilant” during the island-wide manhunt.

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.
