Waiawa prisoners charged with escape

Prosecutors have charged four prisoners who apparently climbed over two fences at the Waiawa Correctional Facility with escape.

Police arrested Elijah Kea-Kahumoku, 26, and Jordan White, 22, at 9:15 p.m. Monday at an apartment building at 370 Wilikina Drive in Wahiawa after a tip. 

Police located two other escapees — David Carvalho, 40, and Thomas George, 24 — outside the Pagoda Hotel a few hours later at midnight. Police got a tip that the men would be there.

A 41-year-old Wahiawa woman arrested with Kea-Kahumoku and White was released without charges, police said. She was arrested for not cooperating with officers trying to arrest the men.

Adult correctional officers reported the men missing at 1:10 a.m. Sunday during a bed check.

If convicted of felony escape, they could serve up to five more years in prison.

Public safety officials said the men, housed in the same facility, may have planned the escape weeks ago.

All Waiawa inmates have four years or less on their minimum term, or four years or less on their maximum sentence, officials said. The four who escaped would have been reviewed by parole board in the next 18 months.

Carvalho, one of the four, was denied parole earlier this month but would have been considered for parole again next year.
