Jason Cantan

Hawaii Island extended furlough inmate Jason Cantan has turned himself in voluntarily at the Hawaii Community Correctional Center in Hilo.

Jason Cantan failed to report for his scheduled check-in on Wednesday, Feb. 18, at the Hale Nani Reintegration Center. Inmates in the extended furlough program live and work outside of the facility but must check in at various times each week.

Public safety officials say he turned himself in at 11 a.m. Monday, March 2.

Cantan was serving time for Identity Theft 2 and Promoting Prison Contraband. His next parole hearing is scheduled for April of this year. He faces an additional escape charge.

Hale Nani is located in the Panaewa. The center offers offenders reintegration services and a work release program for sentenced inmates who will be released on the island of Hawaii.

Authorities are still looking for Railee Santos who disappeared on Monday, Feb. 16.

If you see him, call Hawaii County Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.
