Media Release

A 37-year-old Puna man has been charged with escape and other offenses after he failed to report to a correctional facility last year as required.

Aaron Nobriga of Mountain View was scheduled to report to Hale Nani on November 4, after an extended work furlough, but he never appeared.

On the evening of May 17, an officer located him in a sports-utility vehicle in the Kukui Camp area. Nobriga fled from the officer, smashing into the officer’s car as he drove away.

On the afternoon of May 21, police located Nobriga in a stolen car in Mountain View. He was arrested and taken to the Hilo police cellblock while detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continued the investigation.

At 6 p.m. Thursday (May 22) he was charged with escape, unauthorized control of a propelled vehicle, first-degree criminal property damage and second-degree criminal property damage. His bail was set at $70,000.

He remained at the cellblock until his initial court appearance on Friday (May 23).
