Maui police looking for escaped inmate

    Junior Jorju

Maui police and the Department of Public Safety are looking for an escaped inmate from the Maui Community Correctional Center.

Junior Jorju, 40, was discovered missing at a 9:30 p.m. headcount Saturday, according to a spokeswoman for the Public Safety Department.

The prison went into lockdown and guards searched the facility.

Jorju was serving 14 days for driving without a license and contempt of court. He started serving his time on July 7 and was scheduled to be released on July 20.

Jorju was considered a “community custody” inmate, the lowest risk level.

How Jorju escaped is under investigation.

Jorju is described as 5 feet 4 inches tall, weighing 135 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Authorities say anyone seeing Jorju should not approach him and should call 911 to report the sighting.
