Media Release (update)
Big Island police have located 31-year-old Ryan Crandall Hokulea Leialoha, who is wanted by Oregon authorities.
Leialoha turned himself in at the South Hilo police station at 7 a.m. today (September 26). He was arrested in connection with a federal extradition warrant and is being held at the Hilo police cellblock. He is scheduled to be taken before a Hilo judge Thursday (September 27) for an extradition hearing.
Leialoha was being sought on a warrant issued by a federal magistrate for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution. The federal warrant stems from state domestic violence charges out of Salem, Oregon.
Leialoha is originally from the Big Island but moved to Oregon about 10 years ago.
