3 p.m.

An inmate who escaped from a Hawaii jail has been found.

Police arrested Troy Diego Monday after an island-wide manhunt. The search began when he and another inmate escaped from Maui Community Correctional Center on Sunday.

Authorities say staff members noticed a broken door in the back of a dorm building.

Barret Paman turned himself in to police later that day.

Diego is awaiting trial for theft and unauthorized entry into a vehicle. Paman is awaiting trial for burglary, theft and firearms charges. Both men now face an added escape charge.

The escapes come after a riot at the jail last month. The jail was designed to hold 301 inmates but had 410 at the time of the disturbance. State corrections officials say inmates were upset with extreme overcrowding.
