Parole violator Bronson Gouveia turns himself in

Bronson Gouveia turned himself in Friday after the Hawaii Paroling Authority issued a warrant for his arrest.

The 39-year-old was visiting with his parole officer for a routine check-in Thursday morning when, according to the Department of Public Safety, the officer called the Sheriff Warrants Section to have them arrest Gouveia on a parole violation.

Officials say Gouveia ran from the building as deputies arrived. They ordered Gouveia to stop, but he got into a waiting car that sped off.

Public safety officials say he turned himself into sheriffs at around 12:30 p.m. Friday. He was processed at Oahu Community Correctional Center then transported to Halawa Correctional Facility.

Gouveia’s record includes attempted assault 1, burglary 1, robbery 1, weapons possession, and drug charges.

He now faces revocation of parole.
