Hale Nani inmate Richard Elliston was arrested by the Hawaii Police Department and returned to the Hawaii Community Correctional Center Monday after several months at large. Elliston was on a work furlough pass on May 8 and failed to return to Hale Nani as scheduled.
Elliston was serving time for unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle. He is now awaiting trial for second-degree escape.
Hale Nani is a reintegration program located five miles from HCCC. It offers offender reintegration services and a work release program for sentenced inmates who will soon be released on the island of Hawaii.
