By Ian Scheuring

HANAMA'ULU, Kaua'i (HawaiiNewsNow) – A special police task force has apprehended a Kaua'i man on the run since last Wednesday.

On Tuesday morning, police arrested 29-year-old David Borges at a Hanama'ulu residence. The arrest was made at approximately 9:30am by members of the Kaua'i Police Department's Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team.

Borges had been on the run since last week Wednesday after he allegedly fled after an attempted stop by police. Officials say he led police on a pursuit just before 4pm before losing control of his vehicle as he tried to turn onto Kaua'i Beach Drive.

The Hanama'ulu man reportedly eluded police by running into the bushes near the Kaua'i Beach Resort.

Borges was charged with multiple offenses including: three counts of contempt of court; second degree criminal trespass; first degree extortion; prohibited acts related to drug paraphernalia; third degree promoting a dangerous drug; resisting an order to stop; second degree robbery; and two counts of unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle.

Borges is currently being held in police cellblock in lieu of $71,500 bail.

His arraignment has not yet been scheduled.
