Police officer injured during arrest of Laumaka escapee

By Star-Advertiser staff


Police recaptured a 45-year-old man who escaped from the Laumaka Work Furlough Center, but only after a struggle that injured an officer.

The escapee, Carleton James Santos, is charged with second-degree escape, unauthorized entry into a dwelling, resisting arrest and first-degree assault on a law enforcement officer. He was scheduled to appear in District Court this morning. 

Santos, who was only a few months away from a parole hearing, escaped from Oahu Community Correctional Center's Laumaka Work Furlough Center on June 25.

Police found him at about 10:15 a.m. Monday at an Ahiahi Place address off North School Street in Kalihi. When officers arrived, Santos fled and broke into a housing unit occupied by a 47-year-old man and held the man against his will, police said.

Santos assaulted an officer while attempting to flee from the unit, police said.

The officer was treated at a hospital and released with non-critical injuries..

Santos was convicted for robbery and began serving a 20 year sentence in 2000.

He was paroled in December 2004, but violated his parole and was brought back in April 2005 because he tested positive for drugs,didn't check in with his parole officer and didn't get the required drug treatment, according to the Department of Public Safety.  His next parole hearing was scheduled for November 2012.

Just build another prison. Who are we kidding man? We have many construction workers who want to use their skills. Also, about four hours ago, I talked to a trio of construction workers getting ready to go up to Hawaii Loa Ridge and they say they were in the midst of building a $7 Million house up there. Gee Grabs moves fast does he not?
