Missing Extended Furlough Inmate Turns Himself In
Big Island extended furlough inmate Jason Cantan turned himself in today at 11 a.m. to the Hawaii Community Correctional Center (HCCC) in Hilo, according to the Department of Public Safety.
Cantan went missing after he failed to report to his regular check-in on Wednesday, Feb. 18 at Hale Nani Reintegration Center in Panaewa. Inmates in the extended furlough program live and work outside of the correctional center, and are required to check in at scheduled times throughout the week.
Cantan was serving time for Identity Theft 2 and Promoting Prison Contraband. He now faces an additional escape charge. His next parole hearing is in April.
