Prison escapees find freedom short-lived

By 67AM KPUA News

Prison escapes are on the upswing, but the escapees keep ending up back where they began behind bars. The state Department of Corrections said this week that every inmate who has escaped from a jail or prison in Hawaii this century has been captured. Five inmates have escaped so far this year, compared to eight last year and just two in 2012.

Prison overcrowding continues to be a big issue throughout the state. Hilos Hawaii Community Correctional Center was designed for 206 inmates, but houses 388.
