Tip leads to capture of missing inmate
An anonymous tip Saturday night led to the capture of a Maui Community Correctional Center inmate who had escaped from a jail work detail at Lahaina Civic Center on Friday morning.
Maui police took Henry "Hana" Rosenthal, 32, into custody without incident at about 10:40 p.m. Saturday in Lahaina, according to Maui Police Department spokesman Lt. Wayne Ibarra.
Officials had received a tip around 10:17 p.m. alerting police that Rosenthal was on the upstairs balcony of a residence on Kale Street in Lahaina.
Police responded to the location and located Rosenthal in an upstairs bathroom, Ibarra said.
According to court records, Rosenthal was sentenced in August 2004 to a 10-year prison term for first-degree burglary. Rosenthal also has convictions for theft, forgery, assault, driving without a license, criminal property damage and parole and probation violations.

Molokai firefighters helped a 20-year-old woman Sunday afternoon after she was believed to have had an extreme allergic reaction while at Halawa Falls on Molokai, Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga said.
