A Hale Nani work furlough inmate is being sought by the Department of Public Safety after he failed to return following a day pass to work.

Devin Saragosa-Taoy, 24, left for work Monday morning and was set to return by 4:30 p.m. He is a community custody inmate, the lowest classification status in the work furlough program, with pass privileges.

When Saragosa-Taoy failed to return, DPS officials notified State Sheriffs and the Hawai’i Police Department.

Saragosa-Taoy is 5-foot-8 and is 159 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone who sees Saragosa-Taoy should call 9-1-1.


Once recaptured, Saragosa-Taoy will face an additional escape charge.
