Tips from the public led to the arrest Thursday of a 34-year-old convicted felon, considered armed and dangerous and wanted by police and the state Sheriff Division.

Deputy sheriffs located Richard Kauvaka in Kalihi at 9:05 p.m. Thursday at School and Houghtailing streets after the state urged airlines to be on the lookout for him March 28 because he was reportedly a flight risk and is suspected of serious crimes.

The Department of Public Safety said there is a parole retake warrant for his arrest.
