East Hawai‘i woman wanted in custodial interference investigation arrested and charged
Hawaiʻi Island police arrested and charged a Mountain View woman who was wanted in a custodial interference investigation.
Shereenmarie Dalao Godoy, 35, was arrested without incident in Mountain View, on Saturday afternoon. She was charged the same day with two counts of second-degree custodial interference.
The charges stem from a runaway investigation where two female juveniles, ages 17 and 11, left their foster home without permission on Thursday evening.
According to Hawai‘i Island police, the girls walked to a convenience store in Kea‘au where the older juvenile asked a stranger to use their phone to call Dalao Godoy, who is her non-custodial biological mother. The older juvenile then asked the stranger for a ride to Dalao Godoy’s residence in Mountain View.
Dalao Godoy drove both girls to Hilo where the 11-year-old was dropped off down the street from a relative’s residence. The relative immediately called police and she was placed back into foster care.
When detectives arrested Dalao Godoy, the older female juvenile was not with her and is still listed as a runaway. Dalao Godoy was released after posting $1,000 bail, and her initial court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 24 in Hilo District Court.
