A 50-year-old New York area sex offender fugitive, who had been receiving welfare benefits while hiding in Hawaii, was arrested by police Tuesday in Waikiki.

Police said Brantley M. Carroll was located at a Liliuokalani Avenue address and arrested on an extradition warrant.

Police said the New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force requested assistance in locating Carroll, who is wanted for eight misdemeanor and nine felony sex offenses, including rape. 

Carroll fled to Canada and then China when he became aware that he was being investigated, police said.

Police said checks into his whereabouts revealed that he was receiving benefits in Hawaii. 

There was no immediate comment from the New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force on Carroll's offenses.

It's not so much that he was a sexual predator receiving welfare benefits, which you'd be surprised at the number of convicted sexual predators are qualified and receiving welfare benefit, but that this sex predator had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. It kills me knowing that my misused taxes supported this !#ricken nut on the run. Who can we hold responsible? Nobody. When it's a government mistake, it's then relabelled as a system flaw.

Another INCOMPETENT job by the State of Hawaii. Just when the State/City/and County has sunk to an all time low in services rendered to the taxpayers, here's another one that, let me guess, slipped away? Occupy protesters should camp out on all of the State buildings, demanding Competent performance and service. When Hawaii's Economic system finally crumbles, you will not see any of the leaders take to the streets to assure the taxpayers that all will be fixed. They will run off to their off-island/out-of-state Villas, purchased with the Millions atop of Millions of dollars, STOLEN from the hard working citizens of Hawaii. In Rome, Crooked Politicians, Police, and Govt. Workers were EXECUTED for their INCOMPETENCE. Stay Tuned Hawaii, Revolution is happening all over the world.
