After 3 months on the lam, youth escapee recaptured

A 17-year-old teen who ran away from the Kaneohe youth corrections facility three months ago, while being taken to a medical appointment, is back in custody.

Police recaptured the boy Monday afternoon after officers were called to a Waipahu barber shop to investigate a report of a suspicious man.

The youth was returned to the Hawaii Youth Correctional Facility and faces additional charges of second-degree escape, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. He had been at large since Dec. 30.
