Sheriffs arrested missing OCCC inmate Winston Kailimai. Sheriffs, working on a call in tip, were able to locate him on Nimitz Highway near Sand Island at about 3pm. Sheriffs are transporting him to the Hawaii State Hospital. 

The Department of Public Safety says, OCCC detainee Winston Kailimai was mistakenly released Wednesday. Kailimai was sentenced and released on probation on a misdemeanor charge at approximately 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. Kailimai was recently found unfit to stand trial on a separate assault case and should have been transferred to the State Hospital instead of being released.
