Fugitive falls into hands
of law officers
An armed fugitive was arrested after falling through the ceiling of an Ewa Beach home during a search by Honolulu police and federal law enforcement agents, police said yesterday.
Silver Jose Galindo -- a k a Daniel Galindo, Nimrod Patrick Galindo and Timothy Mau -- was indicted by a state grand jury in September for auto theft. Galindo, who was one of 10 fugitives featured last year in the weekly newspaper MidWeek, has seven prior felony convictions, including four for firearm offenses.
Police said Galindo, 37, had since changed his appearance and identity. He was found hiding in the ceiling of an Ewa Beach residence on Thursday at 7 p.m. Law enforcement officers went up to where Galindo was hiding and wrestled with him, causing him to fall through the ceiling and landing on the kitchen floor, where he was arrested.
Police said they recovered a handgun and ammunition that Galindo had at the time of his arrest. Investigators also said that Galindo might face additional federal charges as a result of an ongoing investigation.
Besides Galindo, four other adults were arrested at the residence for outstanding warrants and criminal offenses, including Charles Ingram, a fugitive wanted for questioning in a 2000 attempted-murder case.
