Criminals a no-show after work furlough
A man serving time for several violent crimes including attempted murder is one of two inmates who failed to return from work-furlough jobs Monday night.
Both men are considered escapees.
Allan Abihai, 44, was supposed to return to the Laumaka Work-Furlough facility by 7 p.m. from his job at Environmental Biotech, said Louise Kim McCoy, spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Safety.
Abihai was serving time for attempted murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree sexual assault and kidnapping, according to the Hawaii Criminal Justice Data Center. On April 23, 1985, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison, according to state records.
He was also serving time for second-degree robbery and auto theft.
McCoy said he left the Laumaka facility at 6:30 a.m. to report to work, McCoy said. She did not have details on his crimes or how much time he had left on his sentence.
He is described as 5-foot-11 and weighs 170 pounds.
The second inmate who didn't return from work is 26-year-old Rory Cabrera, McCoy said.
He was serving time for robbery and a firearm violation.
McCoy said Cabrera left the Laumaka facility at 5:45 a.m. for his job at HAM Produce and Seafood Inc. and was supposed to return at 5:30 p.m.
He is described as 5-foot-11 and weight 120 pounds.
McCoy said it was just coincidence that both men did not return on the same night.
