The Department of Public Safety says that a missing extended furlough inmate on the Big Island was arrested Thursday afternoon in Kona.

Race Bolner, 23, failed to check in for his scheduled report in Kona on Aug. 6.

Extended furlough inmates live and work outside of the facility but are required to check in at various times throughout the month.

According to DPS, Bolner is classified as community custody, which is the lowest custody level.

Bolner, who was serving time for theft, forgery, and fraudulent use of a credit card is now expected to be charged with Escape 2. He will be returned to the Hawai’i Community Correctional Center.
