Honolulu, HI – On Monday, November 24, 2014, members of the U.S. Marshals Violent Offender Task Force and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) located and arrested 50 year-old Ronnie Chisholm of Oahu at an address located in Hauula. Chisholm was wanted by the County of Maricopa, Arizona on an arrest warrant for two counts of sexual conduct with a minor and three counts of molestation of a child. All counts are classified as a dangerous crime against children.
On or about September 11, 1988 to September 11, 1989, Chisholm is accused of engaging in various sexual acts and sexual molestation with a minor who at the time was six years old. Chisholm was in a relationship with the victim’s mother while living within the County of Maricopa.
On January 20, 2000, a grand jury indictment for Chisholm was filed by the Maricopa County Attorney’s office, but Chisholm had already left Arizona and was living in Hawaii. Then on November 13, 2014, an arrest warrant was issued by the County of Maricopa for Chisholm based on the January 2000 indictment. The Maricopa County Attorney’s office immediately sought the assistance of the FBI and U.S. Marshals to track down Chisholm and return him to Arizona. U.S. Marshals Task Force members and FBI agents in Honolulu identified possible locations for Chisholm while conducting surveillance and following up on leads. On November 24 at approximately 5:45 pm, U.S. Marshals, ICE-ERO Task Force Officers, and FBI agents located Chisholm at his residence on Kaipapau Loop where he was taken into custody.
Chisholm was transported and booked into the Honolulu Police Department Central Receiving pending a court appearance and extradition hearing back to Arizona.
