Missing extended furlough inmate arrested on Hawaii island

Hawaii county police arrested a missing extended furlough inmate Sunday morning, the Department of Public Safety announced.

Troy Chung-Hoon was arrested on suspicion of second-degree escape and returned to the Hawaii Community Correctional Center.

Chung-Hoon failed to check in on Jan. 26 when he was scheduled to meet with his case manager at the Hale Nani Reintegration Center in Hilo.

The 35-year-old was serving time for driving under the influence of an intoxicant. He was a community custody inmate, the lowest custody level.

Inmates in the extended furlough program live and work outside the facility, but must check in at various times through the month.

Correction: An earlier version of this story said Chung-Hoon was captured and returned to the Hawaii Community Correctional Center on Monday.
