Three inmates at Kulani Correctional Facility escaped early Friday (February 20, 2004), but were apprehended a short time later near the minimum security prison.

The inmates were identified as Shane Honolii Salis, 24, Pisaga Saau Jr., 29, and Joseph Felix Ravey, 33.

Prison authorities said the prisoners were accounted for at a 4 a.m. bed check, but were discovered missing at a head count conducted at 6:30 a.m.

The three were found five minutes later on Stainback Highway and detained by a corrections officer who was driving to work. The prisoners were about 100 yards above the intersection of the highway and North Kulani Road about 12 miles from the honor camp.

The inmates were later arrested and charged with second-degree escape. The bail was set at $5,000 each, and the inmates were taken to the Hawaii Community Correctional Center in Hilo.
