Laumaka escapee back behind bars

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 9:08 a.m. HST, Sep 24, 2013

A 29 year-old Oahu Community Correctional Center escapee from a work furlough program was recaptured Monday night and returned to the Kalihi prison.

Ernest Vierra, who was serving time for second-degree robbery and car theft, was reported missing after a Friday morning head count at the Laumaka Work Furlough Center.

Vierra had held a community custody status --the lowest level of incarceration.

He now faces an additional charge of second-degree escape.

Deputy sheriffs on the U.S. Marshals Service Task Force Fugitive Team worked various leads that eventually led to Vierra's arrest in Kapolei. Sheriff's returned him to  OCCC at 8:30 p.m
