LAHAINA, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

 

A man who had been on the run since escaping from a prison work detail on Friday was found by police at a home on Kale Street in Lahaina on Saturday night.

Henry "Hana" Roesenthal had been working at the Lahaina Civic Center when he escaped, and was last been seen wearing a bright orange Maui Community Correctional Facility shirt.

After searching for Roesenthal for two days, Maui police finally caught him after a caller told authorities that he was hiding at the Kale St. residence. 

He was reportedly caught in the upstairs bathroom when police arrived.
