Two pre-trial detainees escaped from the Maui Community Correctional Center early Sunday morning.

One of the men, 31-year-old Barret “BJ” Paman turned himself in on Sunday afternoon.  The other escapee, 30-year-old Troy Diego remained at large at last report.

The escape was discovered when staff noticed a broken door in the back of a dorm building.  During a search of the perimeter, correctional staff found clothing in the razor wire fence.

Diego is described as 5’10” tall and weighs 140 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He is pre-trial detainee for theft, unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and failure to appear.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call Maui Police.


The incident comes on the heels of a riot at the facility in March.

It is believed 30-year old Troy Diego (left) and 31-year old Barret “BJ” Paman (right) left the facility around 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 14, 2019.
