Police arrested today a Laumaka work furlough inmate, missing since Jan. 20.

The Department of Public Safety said that Roman Maave was arrested and returned at about 11:20 a.m. today to the Oahu Community Correctional Center.

Public Safety thanked police for returning Maave back into custody.

Maave was serving time for third-degree promotion of a dangerous drug. He is now facing an escape charge.

He is a community custody inmate in the work furlough program with pass privileges, which is the lowest classification status, the Public Safety Department said.

Public Safety is also reminding residents to download a new public notification system called AlertSense, which went into effect Feb. 1.

All alerts on the Nixle Alert system ended Jan. 31.
