Hillbroom flunks drug test in Palau, runs and is arrested

Hillblom heir jailed for violating plea deal

Koror- DHL Larry Hillblom multi-millionaire heir Larry Imeong Hillbroom, after more than two days on the run, was apprehended at his girlfriend’s house at 1 p.m. Friday, according to the Palau Attorney General’s Office.

Attorney General Ernestine Rengiil confirmed the apprehension of Hillbroom, who was immediately sent to jail upon his arrest.

“Yes, Hillbroom went to jail right away,” Rengiil said.

Hillbroom is also set to appear before the court on July 31 for a hearing on the violation of his probation.

An arrest warrant was issued against Hillbroom on Wednesday after he failed a drug test on July 16. The police however were not immediately able to find him, prompting a manhunt Thursday.

Rengiil said the condition set in the plea agreement was immediate incarceration should he test positive.
